Diocese of Pittsburgh Keeps Information about Abusive Priest from Public

By David Clohessy

At least 33 Pittsburgh priests are publicly accused child molesters. For the third time, the bishop is writing a letter letting a few hundred of his 700,000 members about one of them.

And he’s writing it only to parishioners at one of the eight churches where the predator – Fr. John Wellinger – worked.

And Bishop Zubik’s public relations man refuses to disclose or even confirm all the parishes where Fr. Wellinger worked.

The question is: why won't Zubik warn all of his flock about these 33 child molesting clerics and write letters to ALL the places where they worked?

We hope that every victim, witness, and whistleblower in the Pittsburgh diocese will come forward to law enforcement officials and not church officials. We urge anyone with information about Fr. Wellinger or any other priest from the Diocese of Pittsburgh to come forward to police immediately.
