PORTSMOUTH CONTINUED……..

EGAN

Dear Bishop Pat,

Thank you for beginning to shed some light on the unsavoury goings on in Portsmouth diocese.

I was a diocesan employee for many years.

Around 3 years ago, it was decided that the diocese needed a “chief operating officer,” and one was appointed.

The COO is paid £100,000 anualy and is given free reign. There is no supervision of her at all, and she fires all the shots. I found her to be bullying, and with her, everything’s a drama.

Her son will soon be ordained a priest for the diocese. He has appeared on your blog before.

HEATHER HAUSCHILD

The COO is Heather Hauschild, and I resigned over her.

I was also unhappy with wat I saw as the incompetence of the moderator of the Curia Canon Michael Dennehy – who incidentally was JOHN PAUL LYTTLE’S PP in Reading when the policeman alleged assault took place.

CANON DENNEHY

I also believed I was seeing too much corruption and mishandling.

Bishop Egan is a dictator. He holds grudges and treats people very badly. If you cross him, he will come after you.

I remember him dismissing Angela McGrory, the then head of safeguarding, because she challenged him on his handling of an alleged abuse case involving Cardinal Murphy O’ Connor – investigated during te IICSA enquiry.

MYRPHY O CONNOR

Since the arrival of the COO there has been a huge turnover of diocesan employees.

The relationship between the COO and the clergy couldn’t be worse. She treats the priests of the diocese disrespectfully and undermines them.

I had to get out!

There is so much to be uncovered in Portsmouth, and I sincerely hope you keep digging and that priests will be courageous enough to speak out.

CANON P J SMITH

CANON SMITH

Until September 2022, was Cathedral Dean. He is now out of parish ministery completely and is living in a parish presbytery and being funded by the diocese. What happened?

There is talk of financial issues and something about a local undertaker?

Smith is a close friend of Fr Michael Daly, the PP of Parsons Green in Westminster.

MICHAEL DALY

THE NEW BISHOP’S SECRETARY

FATHER ANTHONY FYK appeared to come out of nowhere. No one knows him, and he has no connections with Portsmouth.

FR FCK

Fr Fyk was a seminarian for a Canadian diocese ans half way through his training when he changed diocese and tomove halfway across the world to be ordained by Egan and lo live with his former seminar vice rector.

FATHER RAY LYONS AND FR SEAN TOBIN

These two priests have been business partners for many years and now live together.

They have also bought a holiday home in Spain together.

Fr Lyons is very wealthy and made his money in property before coming to the priesthood.

He was abused as a child by a priest.

Fr Tobin was a painter and decorator before becoming a priest.

Bishop Hollis suspended Fr Lyons from ministry, and Bishop Egan reinstated him. He went on to be a school chaplain in Westminster and was suspended a second time?

After being removed from ministry the second time, Fr Lyons moved in with Fr Tobin, who was PP in Fleet. Bishop Egan said Fr Lyons had to leave the presbytery.

This, I caused Fr Tobin to have a breakdown, and he has not been seen since.

Frs Tobin and Lyons ate reputed to be looking to buy a building in Fleet to open their own church there.

Bishop Egan is trying to laicise them.

EGANS 10 YEAR PLAN

Egan intends to reduce the dioceses parishes from 127 to 23.

There will be 23 parish priests and 23 parish bank accounts. All other priests will be assistan priests.

The parish finances will then be all governed by the COO !

The plan is to sell off dozens of parish churches diocesan debt. It costs £ 6 million a year to run the diocesan offices.

The diocese owns £ 400 million in property.

Bishop Egan as a personal secretary and personal assistant paid for by te diocese.

A communications officer paid £ 75,000, and the COO paid £ 100,000.

Bishop Egan inherited millions of pounds from Bishop Hollis from funds ring fenced for the LIVING OUR CHURCH projects. He has spent it all.

Egan has raided many diocesan accounts. On paper they look to have money in them but it’s all gone !

The parish levies have been set far too high, which is a burden on parishes.

Now Egan has set sight on the PRIEST’S RETIREMENT FUND.

The diocese is in freefall. It is a complete mess. The priests are reluctant to cooperate, and it will get worse.

Bishop Pat, if you keep the spotlight on Portsmouth, others will talk.

The story in is very concerning because of the layers of nuance, emphasis, deceit, sneaky decision making and lack of proper accountability. There’s a recklessness about the Bishop that can only bring more and further scandals and problems. Sometimes when high profile lay people are brought in 8n h6ge salaries they automatically assume serious roles and some have begun bullying staff and clergy in parishes. Men and women now in positions once held by clerics are asserting their power and are demanding hugely hugh salaries. In the newly constructed dynamics and moves, something will give and the whole edifice will crumble. All these initiatives and projects lack a faith, prayer and spiritual foundation. Sadly. And those in power are pretending to listen.

Thanks for more fascinating information on my diocese which I’m not going to get from the parish newsletter. Some clarification is needed on that massive diocesan fundraiser “Living our Faith” which was launched in 2009 under Bishop Crispin Hollis, long before Philip Egan arrived.
Living our Faith was controversial from the start. Its problems included:
1. Doubts about the honesty of its stated goals. There was a hugely significant legal case (Father Wilfred Baldwin – check it out) running at the time. One powerful suspicion was that the money from LOF was needed either to directly fund the potentially massive costs of the Wilfred Baldwin litigation or to plug the gaps in other funds sucked into that case. The diocese naturally flatly denied this.
2. LOF involved an American fundraising company which took a seven figure fee from the diocese before any money was raised.
3. At least one objective of the LOF appeal (funding clergy formation) was already amply covered by an existing fund.
4. The diocese at the time was running a £1 million a year surplus and apparently could have accumulated a capital reserve by other means – including the massive fees paid to the US company.
No wonder that one acid tongued senior priest referred to LOF as Fleecing The Flock. Or that some parishes, priests and laity flatly refused to cooperate.
Later reports on the use of LOF funds looked even more baffling. Instead of being used for big capital projects which individual parishes might struggle to fund, it was dispersed in many small grants, most of which could gave been fund raised by any enthusiastic parish.
As for Canon P J Smith, lately assigned to the Cathedral before quietly disappearing to Horndean……I sang at his ordination in 2007 and could only wonder how long it would be before his career hit the iceberg. Any more information?

In the case of Northampton diocese, there was lots of emotional blackmail to make pledges. Parishoners were asked to sign up other parishoners, which was potentially coercive.

It is right that JP takes personal responsibility for his behaviour, but equally there should be some very serious questions asked of those who had oversight, direction, and formation of him over many years. Why was this man allowed to be ordained ? It is indicative of what we already know, that by and large the system of formation for priests is not fit for purpose and is dysfunctional.

Why can’t a lay person do it, instead of having a desk priest?

This blog is about Bishop Egan. Too many comments have been made about other matters. Egan needs to be watched carefully. At his ordination he said that he hoped to be an ‘orthodox bishop’. Another Bishop (after the burial of a good freind of mine) told me that there was concern about this amongst his colleagues because Egan was as good as saying they were not orthodox. They didn’t like that, and rightly so. Remember, Egan was VG to Bishop Mark Davies, another ‘orthodox cleric’. Murphy O’Connor said that Davies’s name would have been jetisoned if he had been at the meeting considering him as a bishop. Watch Egan. He is a rigid thinker. I think the following sums him up. I am an Anglican. It happened that I dropped in on a mass (in London) Egan celebrated. There was a prayer for the conversion of Engand. I found it arrogant and very wrong. He doesn’t recognise Christian of other demoninations. If that is orthodox, it is very wrong. I think many priests in Portsmouth diocese must be dismayed and very unhappy.

It’s very ineresting and telling to hear you say that the old lefty Murphy O’Conner of the St Gallen Mafia would have jetisoned Davies name if he had been there as he was considered orthodox! That tells you everything about that oul melt who never wanted anything orthodox. Thank God he’s gone, there was nothing wrong with Bishop Egan praying for the conversion of England it surely needs it. It is very refreshing to hear that there is at least one orthodox Bishop left.

Hello Pat
You’ve commented that Angela Mc Grory is the FIRST and ONLY RCC safeguarding officer that has ever impressed yo,u, and you say that you regard safeguarding officers with the same level of suspicion as you regard social workers.
What makes Ms McClory different is that she was never “a social worker”. She first first became involved in this line of work thirty years ago when she was a police officer.

The undercurrent with Egan and Davies is a frustrated or repressed homosexuality both their own and others.
Of course they all use orthodoxy as a cloak to hide behind and a weapon to beat people with.
The other undercurrent is money and their love of it.
With a property portfolio of £400 million Portsmouth won’t starve.

McQuaid was certainly an intellectual. However his interference in Irish politics lead to appropriate unease amongst northern unionists. The term Rome rule for the Irish republic is in a large part due to his interference. His interference instilled fear from both northern and southern Irish people alike. De Valera, the wannabe priest, was the perfect companion for him. Their handiwork in the framing of the Irish constitution led to untold misery and abuse amongst citizens. Because of them both, abusers were protected and the vulnerable were punished. The Roman Catholic Church has been exposed for what it is: nothing more than a Mafia organisation. The concept of justice does not feature in their thinking . It’s all about protecting the brand and the money making machine. Christ is only a cover story for them. I had high hopes for Pope Francis but he has let down the faithful, let down Christ and protected abusers. How he can be called a descendant of St Peter is beyond me. He is merely the head of a corrupt mafia masquerading as a servant of Christ. As others have said, his organisation is a cesspit

The Interference you talk about by Dr McQuaid is a nonsense he acted as an Archbishop of those day’s would. After years of the protestant ascendancy, no wonder he was feared when they saw that they were on the way out. They had ruled over the majority Catholic population and kept them down for generations, so naturally they were fearful of losing their position. Archbishop John Charles McQuaid was the greatest Prelate of the XXth century in Ireland. Just look at the present Hierarchy compared to him, says it all. He would be appalled to see the Ireland of today, thanks be to God he was spared it. How you had high hopes for the dictator Bergo I don’t know, from his first appearance on the Loggia I knew he would be the disaster he has turned out to be.
