The Church of the Blessed Sacrament in St. Paul

Grand Forks Herald
September 23, 2013

The Church of the Blessed Sacrament is on St. Paul's east side. It merged with St. Thomas the Apostle under the archdiocese's 2011 reorganization plan to form the Parish of the Blessed Sacrament. When the Rev. Curtis Wehmeyer was accused in 2012 of sexually abusing children, officials from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis told police he would immediately be relieved of his duties and were praised for their response. But Minnesota Public Radio reports top archdiocese officials had known of Wehmeyer's sexual compulsions for nearly a decade yet kept him in ministry and failed to warn parishioners. Wehmeyer is serving a 5-year prison term for sexually abusing two boys and possessing child pornography. (AP Photo/Minnesota Public Radio, Jennifer Simonson)
