Although it is an honor to be named as your temporary Parochial Administrator at Presentation, I wish that it were under different circumstances. As you may be aware, on Friday, August 12, 2016, I was saddened to learn that a contracted service-related allegation had been filed against Monsignor Lawrence McGovern. In accordance with Canon Law of the Church, Bishop Blaire has placed Monsignor McGovern on administrative leave pending a full and complete investigation. The allegation that was filed is based on actions related to the employment of an independent contractor. The complaint filed does not allege or otherwise indicate any conduct in relation to students or young people.
I humbly request your prayers and I also ask that we continue to pray for everyone involved.
Parochial Administrator, pro tem
