Parish priest removed for inappropriate questioning during confession

For once, the child protection system worked.

Child protection procedures mean little if those required to execute them fail to do so. But we are reassured to learn that “the system” can work, as it did recently in a parish in Nebraska.

We offer our support and appreciation to the children and parents at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic School who alerted the principal, Mrs. Sandra Suiter, to improper conduct in the confessional by Rev. Nicholas Mishek, an associate pastor at St. Robert Bellarmine parish in Omaha, Nebraska.

Mark Mullaney -- Sad News

It is with a heavy heart that I share with all of you the passing of our friend, VOTF trustee, and past President Mark Mullaney.

Mark and his wife Kathy were founders of Voice of the Faithful and played critical roles in our early years, and throughout our work. Mark not only served two terms as President and Chairman of the Board, he filled in as a acting executive director and other roles as needed.
