Bishop Siegel to Hold Third of Four Prayer Services Tonight in Jasper Amid Re-Kindled Abuse Claims

JASPER -- Bishop Joseph M. Siegel will hold the third of four Prayer Services for Healing and Reparation tonight at St. Joseph Parish, 1029 Kundek Street in Jasper at 7 p.m. EDT tonight (Tuesday), according to a release from the church this morning.

 Bishop Siegel is holding these services for those who have been affected by clergy sexual abuse.  

The topic has been re-kindled in recent months with new allegations, including at least one in our general area.  Father David Fleck denies the charges against him.

The media has been asked by church officials not to film those in attendance so survivors of abuse can feel comfortable attending the service without violating their privacy.
