St. Stans shops for affiliation

   A year after severing ties with Rome, St. Stanislaus Kostka Church is looking for an affiliation that will allow it to keep its Catholic ties.  Reverend Marek Bozek tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the church wants to have options.  

   Bozek tells the paper he's partial to the Episcopal Church because it's in full communion with the Old Catholic Church of Utrecht.  The European body separated from Rome more than 100 years ago over issue of papal infallibility, but its sacraments are seen as valid by the Vatican.  Bozek says they don't actually want to become Episcopalian, but would like to work toward becoming an Old Catholic parish.  

   St. Stans is also talking with the Ecumenical Catholic Church, the Polish National Catholic Church, and even some more marginal groups, like Roman Catholic Womenpriests.

   The church just north of downtown had governed its own finances since the 19th century.  It's been in a battle for its survival and autonomy since 2003, when the archdiocese first asked the parish to hand over control of its property and assets. Church officials refused and were excommunicated, as was Rev. Bozek.

 

   In 2008 the archdiocese sued for control of the church, but a St. Louis Circuit Court ruled in 2012 in favor of St. Stans.  The archdiocese agreed last year to dismiss its appeal, after St. Stans agreed not to affiliate itself with the Vatican.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court says the Archdiocese of St. Louis must release the names of  church employees accused of sexual abuse over the past 20 years.
 
The Wednesday ruling upholds a St. Louis judge's earlier decision. The names will be released only to an unnamed woman suing the diocese and her attorneys, not to the general public.
 
The archdiocese subsequently released a list of 240 complaints made against 115 priests and other employees since 1986. A court order keeps the names sealed to the public.
 
The lawsuit was filed in 2011 by a 19-year--old woman who claimed the abuse began when she was 5 years old and attended St. Cronan's parish.
 
The priest had been convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy at a parish in University City decades earlier.

Appeals court ruling sides with archdiocese

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri appeals court has ruled that the Archdiocese of St. Louis will not have to immediately turn over name of priests accused of sexual abuse in the past 20 years.
 
   A St. Louis judge had given the archdiocese a Friday deadline to turn over the names to a woman who sued, alleging that she was molested by a priest when she was a child, and to the woman's attorney. Otherwise, the names were to be kept under seal.
 
   The Eastern District of the Missouri Court of Appeals ruling on Friday did not say if turning over the names would eventually be required, or set a new deadline.
 
   Messages seeking comment from the archdiocese were not returned. The woman's attorney, Kenneth M. Chackes, called the ruling disappointing
