Trying to forget years at St.Josephs Elem. School. "Father" Bob was a child molester and "sister" Victor and "sister" Marie Corde were abusive monsters! All were/are criminals. Too bad the Catholic church just "moved" the pedophile subjecting countless children to abuse. I recently called Bob to ask him why he is no longer a "priest" and why he isn't on any sex offender registry. The Catholic church is the reason. There is still pictures of him on the parish website...absolutely disgusting! We are working to get the photos down and will accept nothing less.

It turns out we had a pedophile priest at St. Mary's on Kenneth Ave. this didn't come out until after his death..He is on the the pedophile list , this was back in the 50's when he was there. I'm sure a lot of you remember Father Francis Lesniak.

I remember all those nuns. Does anybody remember Sister Cyrilla she taught first grade for one year. Who remembers when the sisters changed out of their habits to street clothes.

To the person who "disagreed" with my comments... perhaps you need to do a little investigating/fact finding. Read your newspaper archives, talk with older parishioners, call other paishes, or speak with victims!!! Don't judge what you know nothing about or didn't experience. PLENTY of proof exists. Little update....the church has done the right thing by taking down the photos from the parish website. Hmmmmmm.......more proof!! Hmmmmm was also contacted by the diocese wanting to "talk". Hmmmmmm.....more proof!! No need for and too late for talk. Those involved in the abuse and cover up of those committing abuses to children will sit in judgement one day right along with the despicable person committing the crime....yes CRIME!!

I never had problems with the Priests... then again I was not an alterboy.... The Nun's however where for the most part... Evil, hateful.... unless you Dad was rich enough and donated more $$$ Killer Corde was an APEX predator not in a sexual sense... just evil....
The only Nun I liked/loved was Sister Margaret 4th grade 1971... She saw my genus and tried to nurture it...
I hope there is a HELL.... Sorry GOD.... But "Saint Joes" made me an Atheist ...
