A defrocked Massachusetts priest is appealing his conviction of sexually abusing a young boy during trips to Maine in the 1980s.
A Catholic school in Maine announced it will close at the end of this school year due to financial struggles and shrinking enrollment, school officials said.
The Catholic Diocese of Portland is investigating the actions of a priest who got into a fight with a man hours before the man shot a woman 10 times.
Bishop Robert P. Deeley of Portland Maine, called for the country to continue working to end “any form of religious prejudice” during a New Year’s Day Mass.
A man who says he was abused by a priest has no legal argument to compel the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland to pay for his psychological counseling, a Maine judge has ruled.
Bishop Robert P. Deeley of Portland said he was “saddened to learn” that physician-assisted suicide and taxpayer-funded abortions will not face a statewide vote “despite the great opposition” to both laws.
