Catholic Priest Resigns, Abuse Alleged

The Reverend Julian B. Goodman, pastor of the Catholic Church of the Holy Comforter on Jefferson Street, has been forced to resign over alleged sexual molestation that took place in the early 1980s, WVTF reports. This is presumably a consequence of the Church’s new zero-tolerance policy towards molestation, though few details were provided in the report. 08-08-2002 Update: Adrienne Schwisow has the story in today’s Progress, which provides a great deal more information about the late-70’s case and about the church’s late-60’s case involving a different priest.
