Post-Tribune (Merrillville, IN)
December 23, 2003

A story Monday on the Gary Diocese priest accused of abuse contained several inaccuracies.

First, although Bishop Dale J. Melczek and St. Mary Catholic Community School Principal Suzan LaPeer were not available to comment when the Post-Tribune called, both had been available to media earlier in the day, according to a representative of the Gary diocese.

Also, at no time did the bishop meet with the accused priest, Msgr. Donald C. Grass, and the abuse victim together. Those meetings were conducted separately, according to the diocese.
