The disappearance of young priests soon after ordination seems to be a growing problem.
It costs between £ 150,000 and £ 200,000 to train a priest.
YOUNG PRIESTS MISSING IN ACTION
FATHER CONOR MC CARTHY – DOWN AND CONNOR
Conor was ordained in 2015. He was actually sent to Larne as a curate.
He was living in a dark, cold presbytery with a near retirement.priest.
The house is always in darkness and there would have been more life in a morgue than in that house.
I dont know if that contributed to his leaving.
He now works as a temporary religion teacher in a girl’s grammar school.
He is not mentioned on the Down and Connor Clergy List.
FATHER BRENDAN COLLINS – DERRY
Brendan Collins was ordained for Derry.
He has been left for several years.
He is not mentioned on the Derry Clergy list.
FATHER CHRIS DERWIN – DUBLIN
Chris Derwin was ordained for Dublin in 2015.
He had at least two parishes in two years.
He is not mentioned on the Dublin Clergy List.
Some say he is a shopkeeper in the countryside?
FATHER JOHN PAUL LYTTLE – PORTSMOUTH – PREVIOUSLY DOWN AND CONNOR.
John Paul Lyttle has had a very all over the place history.
He lived in Guernsey and Belfast.
He was a seminarian for Down and Connor.
He then changed to Portsmouth and went too Oscott seminary.
He was dismissed from there by the Bishop of Portsmouth Crispian Hollis.
He fell from a priest’s house wi dow and nearly died.
He was then accepted back into Portsmouth by the new bishop Egan, who ordained him.
As a recent curate in Reading he tried to sexually seduce a young police man parishioner.
He is now missing.
Egan has refused to take any action.
The matter is now being referred to the Congregation of the Clergy in Rome.
The training of these four young priests cost between £ 600,000 and £ 800,000.
Did something go wrong during their training?
Were their formators incompetent?
Anybody know of other recently ordained priests missing inaction?
