Statement of James Goodness, Director of Communications, on the Arrest of Fr. Michael Fugee
We take these allegations seriously and will cooperate fully with law enforcement in its investigation. When the Archdiocese learned of Father Fugee’s violation of certain of its protocols during his off-hours, he was informed there would be significant consequences. Nothing is more sacred than the welfare of our children.
We are in the process of taking steps to ensure that, as much as humanly possible, this type of thing cannot happen again.
