Statement on Father Ken Coughlin
Roman Catholic Diocese of Lansing
May 4, 2014
An allegation of inappropriate touching has been made against Father Ken Coughlin. The allegation involves touching of two students on their legs and hands. Father Coughlin denies that anything inappropriate happened. Under Michigan law and Diocese of Lansing policy, the Michigan office of Child Protective Services (CPS) has been notified, and an investigation has begun. The school, the parish, and the diocese are fully cooperating with the investigation. Until the investigation has been completed, Father Coughlin will be away from Holy Family parish on administrative leave. Please keep all involved in your prayers.
