ANOTHER GLENSTAL “GHOST” COMES BACK TO HAUNT GORMLESS COFFEY AND JAMMY HEDERMAN.

FATHER JOSEPH MC GILLOWAY

EMAIL FROM CATHOLIC MOTHER IN ALASKA:

“Hello Bishop Pat,


I was surprised to find such detail regarding Glenstal Abbey, on your blog. I wonder if you might assist or offer guidance on background of a priest who fled his vows & put up a remote cabin in our figurative backyard ~ was it due to concerns in Ireland?


Three years ago we received a former monk named Fr Joseph McGilloway as pastor to an outpost church in rural Alaska. He was a political leader of Fine Gael, then left politics for the monastery – Glenstal Abbey, where he served as a teacher in the boys’ school.


We were contacted early this summer by a retired local detective named Deven Cunningham, who stated he was investigating Fr Joseph. He had yet to meet the priest but referenced sexual exploitation, grooming and predation being his specialty. He implied that he was an expert polygraph administrator and I inferred that he would be testing Father Joseph.

The questioning was fairly explicit and leads me to believe they have concerns over teen boys. We do know his online profiles (now set to ‘private’) were filled with homoerotic vulgarities, and he recommended salacious shows such as Game of Thrones to the parish youth.

I now feel foolish for agreeing to be interviewed over the phone. I should have inquired for clarity over who hired him — it was the archdiocese, and our chancellor has conveniently declined to share even a summary of the report. I’m now complicit in a cleanup job at the request of “safe environment” hacks, is the sense I get. I’d ultimately like to find out if he’s been ” hacks, is the sense I get. I’d ultimately like to find out if he’s been sent away from his home country because of any allegations.

Can you assist, or offer me guidance on how to proceed? Our Bishop is Andrew Bellisario, and Fr Joseph was under Mark Patrick Hederman, OSB –  I’m unsure who was in charge of his abbey previously.


I really appreciate the time and detail put into your site. The more I read, the more convicted I am that we don’t want castoff priests (or Bishops) sent our way ever again. I am an Alaskan of 42 years and hope to raise my family in the One True Faith 💔. Please accept my gratitude for any wisdom or networking ideas you might offer.


Sincerely,

Xxxxxxx Xxxxxx. Alaska


PS


The attached screenshot of the response I received after repeatedly requesting a summary of the report…. I want to challenge this chancery to exonerate him on paper…. is there nowhere they’re accountable, like little kings”?

The North Star Catholic

Singing Irish monk returns to Alaska seeking to call it home

After spending a sabbatical here in 2009, Benedictine Father Joseph McGilloway of Ireland has returned to Alaska hoping to make the Far North home.

With the permission of his abbot of Glendal Abbey in Limerick and Archbishop Roger Schwietz of Anchorage, the 48-year-old monk and priest arrived back in Alaska on March 5 “to see if I’m going to stay,” he told the Catholic Anchor in an interview. If a 12-month parish assignment and discernment period goes well, Father McGilloway is slated to be incardinated in the Archdiocese of Anchorage. That means he would no longer be a Benedictine monk but a diocesan priest permanently attached to the archdiocese.

During his stay, Father McGilloway is serving as parochial vicar at Holy Cross Church. There he is learning everything from managing church finances and building maintenance to shepherding the myriad lay groups at work in the parish. Through this period, Sister Loretta Luecke will continue to serve as parish administrator.

The energetic Father McGilloway — who has spent most of his monastic life as an administrator and educator in his abbey’s boarding school — observed that “it’s going to be a big learning curve for me.” But he said, “I’ve got off to a really good start, so from my point of view at least, it’s going really, really, really well.”

To be sure, this is a venture Father McGilloway is embracing with vigor because he views it as an important next step in his life’s work.

“The goal of a vocation is to move towards God, and hopefully bring people with you on the journey,” he said. “So in the sense of what I want to do with my life as a priest, that doesn’t change because I’m in a new place.”

But Father McGilloway believes serving in Alaska, in particular, is the best way for him to fulfill his mission.

“There’s only so much time we’re given to do the best we have with,” Father McGilloway said. “I wanted to be in a place that I personally felt was good for me at where I’m at in my life at this time, as well as that I could bring something of value to where I’m going.”

Discovering the Last Frontier and its people during his sabbatical in 2009 was “fundamental” to his decision to return, he said. During his six-month stay, he served at parishes in Talkeetna, Trapper Creek, Dutch Harbor and Eagle River.

“I wouldn’t have gone home if I could have worked out the paperwork and everything from here,” he added.

“I was really so taken by working here,” Father McGilloway continued. “It’s challenging to work in Alaska, and that’s not got to do with the climate or anything like that at all. It’s challenging because the church is an interesting place to be.”

He noted Alaskan Catholics’ “great sense of community.” That’s an “aspect of church here I find very, very appealing, and a very positive way to live out that call to be Christian,” he explained.

In addition, he sees a great, spiritual “positive need” and a “genuine openness” among Catholics here that causes him to believe he “can be a part of solving the puzzle.”

He said he felt “I wasn’t just going to do something, but I was going to be useful somewhere…that I have a sense of purpose in what I’m doing and that the church wants you to be involved. It’s not just that you’re there as a kind of an ornament, but that there’s actually a need for you.”

At his first coming to Alaska, Father McGilloway said he was “awestruck” by the natural beauty of the state, but the kindness of local Catholics — especially at Holy Cross, in the chancery and among his fellow priests — has moved him the most.

“That’s always impressive when people make you feel welcome and make you feel at home and look out for you like family the way Christians are supposed to do,” he said. “That’s always appealing…and always hugely encouraging.”

Father McGilloway is a great music lover.

“Anything to do with music interests me,” he noted with enthusiasm. In fact, while in the monastery, Father McGilloway produced a music CD titled “Sanctuary” featuring a variety of genres from Irish musicians including Grammy award-nominated Moya Brennan, sister to Celtic singer Enya. In 2008, the CD raised $30,000 for charities helping victims of domestic abuse.
Previously a cantor for his abbey, Father McGilloway would like to share some monastic musical traditions with parishioners of Holy Cross. In conjunction with the parish’s music department, he said, “We’re looking at, maybe over a period of time, developing some Gregorian chant in part of our liturgy so that the congregation would get used to the parts that would be quite common.” Father McGilloway noted that most people “have it [chant] at the back of their mind even if they’re not familiar with it.”

For the past few years, Father McGilloway’s favorite pastime has been sacred harp singing — of four-part hymns and anthems — which is considered the oldest form of modern American music.

“It’s really a get-together for people who like to sing,” Father McGilloway observed. There are no instruments in sacred harp; the term “sacred harp” refers to the human voice “which is the harp that God gave us,” he explained in his own engaging Irish brogue.

Father McGilloway entered the Benedictine Order on Jan. 17, 1994. He was ordained a priest on Aug. 9, 2003. Before becoming a monk, he worked in a bar, a retail clothing store and a liquor store, and he sat on the governing board of Fine Gael, now the biggest political party in Ireland.

It gets worse. I’ve never heard of a monk having a sabbatical. Then, for reason or reasons unknown he exits Glenstal and is dumped on the people of Alaska. Why must, at all costs, priests be found a cosy billet somewhere? Does Glenstal export all its problematic monks?

Because the church is simply and solely a Boys’ club to provide comfortable billets for its members which are the clergy. Everything else is in support of that ultimate goal.

During the Patristic era- the first three-to-four- Centuries of the early Church, marriage ceremonies were conducted in people’s homes.
This custom most certainly carried on right up into the middle ages (Romeo and Juliet being one example in romantic Shakespearian literature); there is ample evidence marriages were conducted in this way even up into the eighteenth Century.
—-
Then came along…
“The Marriage Duty Act of 1695 put an end to irregular marriages [the word ‘irregular’, somewhat paradoxical here, as they were quite the ‘norm’ and regular in practice!] – “Irregular” marriages were the regular at parochial churches – and penalising clergymen who married couples without banns or licence was done by way of paying a fine to the state [the price of which was probably added on top of the marriage fee — and refundable, depending on different “circumstances.”]:
the marriage still being recognised, both by canonical, and law of the realm.

… By a legal quirk, however, clergymen operating in the Fleet could not effectively be proceeded against, and the “clandestine” marriage ceremonies there carried on.

“If anybody knows of any legal impediment whereby these two beloved may not be joined together in Holy matrimony – then speak now, or forever hold your peace…”
… Does this imply that if there is legal impediment, the marriage is still “kosher”?
I think so, or why “Forever hold your peace.”?

I see he’s a seminary retread. That rarely works out OK. Here is the bio on his parish’s website:
Fr. Joseph McGilloway was born in Derry, Ireland. At age 17, he began seminary studies, but after two years he decided to take some discernment time – which lasted 9 years. During this time, he developed his interest in Irish and European politics and was elected to the governing board of Fine Gael, the largest political party in Ireland. However, his call to the priesthood persisted, and after reading the Rule of St. Benedict, he entered the Benedictine Order at Glenstal Abbey in January 1998. From there he continued his studies at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. In 2003, on the feast day of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, he was ordained priest.
Fr. Joseph’s past work includes teaching at the monastery secondary school and serving as chaplain to Benedictine nuns at Kylemore Abbey in Ireland. On his first visit to Alaska in 2009 he ministered at parishes in Talkeetna, Trapper Creek, Dutch Harbor, and Eagle River.
An avid sportsman, Alaska captured his soul and with permission of his Abbot and Archbishop Schwietz, he returned to Alaska in 2014. In June 2016, he left the Benedictine Order to become a priest of the Archdiocese of Anchorage.
Sacred Heart looks forward to many years of his energy and gifts.

I’ve got just the opening for him: he can patrol monastery grounds to stop children digging their way in. “Look what it did to me sonny . . .”

Or he can deliver “barely” legal art works in his (leased) white van, just submit your ceiling sizes on our web form.

Was he saving for a property in Derry and does he still own it? Commonplace but unwise to let oneself be talked out of it by the numerous orders, sodalities etc.

Unfortunately, your recycling protocol is depressingly accurate. It would appear that Glenstal Abbey and its leadership are content to actively cover-up and assist with the “disappearance” of problematic members of its monastic community. This is not the first time this has happened, and it certainly will not be the last.
Abbot Mark Patrick Hederman bears responsibility for this mess; but, Abbot Brendan has a moral responsibility to rectify any issues that may unfold in due course.
After all, Fr. McGilloway belongs to the class of persons that can be labelled the political elite in Ireland; hence, he is untouchable and can do no wrong. No doubt, his close contact with Leo Varadkar would be something that would be “important” to Hederman, so the heretical abbot was only too happy to assist. I am led to believe that the former President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, goes on retreat to Glenstal Abbey; so Hederman is comfortable with the great and the good.
If, they were issues in the school, was Fr. McGilloway, sent for an independent evaluation at an institution? And, if the answer is yes — was the report given to the Archdiocese of Anchorage before it accepted Fr. McGilloway?
If the report was not shared with the archdiocese — it is also legitimate to ask did the report highlight issues that would be of legitimate concern to the archdiocese about Fr. McGilloway; and, if that is the case, did, Glenstal Abbey reach its duty of care?
In the customary exchange of letters between Glenstal Abbey and the archdiocese, did Abbot Hederman attest that Fr. McGilloway was a monk and priest in good standing with his Ordinary?
Did Abbot Hederman give Fr. McGilloway a personal reference?
Did Abbot Hederman alert the receiving Archdiocese that there had been issues with Fr. McGilloway in Glenstal Abbey School?
Did Abbot Hederman confirm that Fr. McGilloway was a priest in good standing with permission to officiate within the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly?
Did the Archdiocese of Anchorage seek independent confirmation of the status of Fr. McGilloway from the Archbishop of Cashel and Emly? If not, why not?
We need to bear in mind that Abbot Hederman attempted to defend the indefensible behaviour of Gregory Collins in Jerusalem. I have read his correspondence attempting to defend Collins. Therein, he inferred that Collins’ behaviour was an expression of the love of God; it was supercilious and patronising.
In his intellectually indolent attempt to defend the indefensible Hederman showed a callous disregard for the welfare of the young Palestinian man who can be quite rightly described as Collins’ victim. More seriously, Hederman displayed no insight into the extremely serious security situation in Jerusalem and the wider state of Israel. Hederman who likes to portray himself as the great mystic — a bastion of spirituality is nothing more than a snake oil salesman, who is happy to use his office to cover-up. He is nothing more than a fraud.
Thus, we can infer that Mark Patrick Hederman is more than content to actively participate in the cover-up the questionable conduct of any Glenstal-based monk. One wonders, how glowing (if they were given) were the letters of recommendation to the Diocese of Chichester on behalf of the now Rev’d Collins? And, we can also be reasonably sure that Fr. McGilloway, received gushing attestation from Hederman when the former left the Abbey to be again a new chapter in his life as a priest in Alaska.
