BISHOP MICHAEL HOEPPNER’S ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING FATHER PAT SULLIVAN

February 23, 2019 – It is with great sadness that I announce to you that Fr. Pat Sullivan has been placed on administrative leave. A report was made this past week that involved a boundary issue with Fr. Pat. The issue was non-sexual and non-criminal in nature. However, we take all these matters very seriously. Our Diocesan Review Board for the Protection of Children and Young People, after reviewing the matter, has recommended to me that Fr. Pat go for assessment and in-patient treatment. I ask that you please keep everyone involved in your prayers.
