Parish in Bray (8)

Today (Friday) after 10 a.m. Mass as the ex-Parish Secretary left the Parish Centre after putting her parents names on the Christmas Vigil Altar List she was almost accosted by a 'holier than thou' female Parishioner in early 60's who growled at her "YOU HAVE A NECK TO BE AROUND HERE".

Here was a lady who had just been to Mass, possibly received Holy Communion, stayed on to pray for a short while as the ex-Secretary went to the Parish Centre and as this lady left God's House she said something like that to another human being!!!!

It has to be said that because of untruths put about by the Parish Priest to the likes of this lady (often in the presence of the ex-Secretary) that she has been treated as a Leper for the past 3 years.

Anyone seen speaking to her is quietly warned off by the PP.

Diarmuid Martin knows ALL about the carry on at this Parish and HE SITS ON HIS HEAD AND IGNORES IT.

The problems are NOT GOING AWAY - they are getting worse and worse.

Another lady later met the Secretary to announce "Unfortunately the Parish Priest will return from his 5 month sojourn on 14th - you hold your head up high and ignore him and the rest of them".

As anyone can see it is as plain as day this Parish is split right down the middle with those FOR the Parish Priest and those FOR the ex Secretary.

Here is a man the Parish Priest who studied psychotherapy in Eckhart House for 8 years and he could not sit down and resolve things with a Parish worker 3 years ago and has let things get to this stage.

Unfortunately the reason he could not sit down and resolve things was he thought the Secretary who loved her job and being of service to the Parish Community was just going to walk away on his whim but how wrong he was.

She is still in the throes of a very expensive legal battle that has cost her €26,000 to date while the Insurance Companies throw money at the Parish Priest to pay his costs.

At the time of her unfair dismissal she was also Secretary and member of both the Parish Council and Liturgy Groups and was thrown out of both for no good reason other than the bully tactics of the Parish Priest.

Anything worth having is worth fighting for and almost 600 people initially signed a petition for the Secretary's reinstatement and the petition was sent to Diarmuid Martin and the Parish to be ignored.

They were local people who used the Parish Office every day for over 4 years while the Secretary worked there.

As the Parish Priest had no real reason to let the Secretary go he had to invent one after dismissing her, so he used a carrot to get the Secretary to go for an assessment in order to get her job back.

This assessment was a complete set up bought and paid for by the Parish Priest who broke medical ethics meeting and briefing the person doing the assesent who knew he was in a major employment dispute with the person being assessed and the PP's legal team and PP chose and paid the man doing the assessment.

It was a set up pure and simple and he got the report he paid for citing the Secretary could not go back to work at the Parish.

The Secretary in turn got 3 independent reports clearing her of what the Church report stated but the Catholic Church being GOD said oh no our report is the real one no going back to your job.

The psychological damage that has been caused with this damning untrue and bought report, together with the lies coming from the local Church to turn people against another fellow human being knows no bounds.

If you were living in a society like USA you could sue the Church for MILLIONS for the damage it has done in this case to an innocent person because primarily she got to know too much about the Parish Priests private life through no fault of her own and because she complained about porn and harassment in the workplace and a male employee sending risque emails on her Parish computer that she could have been blamed for.

This case will go on forever until there is an apology for the wrong doing caused and the Parish Priest is put in his place and seen for who and what he is.

His ultimate Boss is the man upstairs - how can he live with himself!!!!

The awful truth is this man is returning to the Parish Saturday week to cause more mayhem and destruction and to be as arrogant and hypocritical as ever.

Who ever heard of a Parish Priest having 2 local Gardai take an ex-Parish Secretary's fingerprints and DNA samples to harass and try to scare her away.

Well it happened in this case. With the crime in the country how did this Parish Priest get the local Gardai to do his bidding like that.

One phone call and he is up to take you to the local station. It happened twice and a further 'warning' in the home.

Oh my the POWER, CORRUPTION, LIES, COVER UPS, are still going on.

The abuse report is due out shortly God help the men women and children who suffered at the hands of those Priests but it seems nobody has learnt anything.

There are STILL Priests out there causing ABUSE be it psychological, bullying or physical AND Diarmuid Martin buries his head in the sand.

May God Forgive Him.

I have no connection with Bray, so my only info is what I have read here on CW

Seems to me to say "Martin buries his head in the sand" is an understatement. Sand? More accurately a 4-letter word beginning with s and ending in t

Just to let readers know for the second time the POWER MIGHT MONEY CORRUPTION LEGAL TEAMS of the Irish Catholic Church has stopped my listings of the truth on the Indymedia site which is supposed to be the site that is the champion of "free speech democracy and truth".

I am sure it has been done with the threat of legal action against Indymedia.

When the going gets tough and things heat up for Bray Parish Priest Fr. Larry White and Archbishop Diarmuid Martin the wishy washy boys at Indymedia quake in their shoes and put up notice "no further comments are being taken on this story" and that is the end of it.

Thank God Father you are not one of that weak sad group hiding the truth and covering up what is going on.

No wonder wrongs are never righted in the Catholic Church because they are buried under a load of S**T as the person who commented above has said and they are not even from Bray.

God Bless your good work.

His Grace can swan around in his grandeur and said at the start of his term as Archbishop that he was a man of the people for truth and justice for helping the oppressed and the underdog but nothing could be further from the truth. He is a Vatican Politician ducking and diving and using the power that he has to shut up the truth. Nearly 5 years ago when he came to the above Parish and had dinner in the Parish Centre to which I was invited as Parish Secretary working for the Parish at that time I sat next to him and we had quite a long conversation and I was both pleased and inspired to hear what he had to say. Since then I have been nothing but hurt, let down and totally disillusioned by the man who is as two faced as the rest of the Clergy. When it comes to defending your own brush the victims under the carpet and TO HELL WITH THEM they are just a pain in the proverbial to him and he wants them to go away.

Again I say God Forgive you Archbishop Martin for the damaged souls you have further damaged by your neglect and arrogance and disregard for the truth.

You don't have to publish this if you feel it is 'just too much' but I had to get it 'off my chest'. You can edit out anything you think should not go into print.

In previous posts you will have read as well as unfairly dismissing me from my job the Parish Priest at Our Lady Queen of Peace also threw me out of the Parish Pastoral Council and Liturgy Group (a first in the country I am sure) and refused to let me be a special Minister of the Eucharist in spite of having done 15 years of Eucharistic Adoration at the Church which has been my Parish Church since 1989.

Reason for this post is how on earth is a NORMAL Priest meant to behave towards his Parishioners? Is he meant to snub and ignore to the point of rudeness when even in the same room as a Parishioner and ex employee who worked in said Church for over 4 years - over 3 of which were for him so that all present can see the hypocrite standing in their midst as arrogant as the Devil himself. As stated I was dismissed from everything except once in 7 weeks I join two other ladies from the hospitality group making tea and coffee after mass and then tidying and cleaning up. It is the only thing in the Parish open to me because the Parish Priest is not in charge of it and the lady who is would quite possibly tell him to go straight to Hell if he had the brass neck to tell her to drop me from the team! Today in fact she gave me a big hug and wished me Happy New Year and said she hoped things improved for me around the Parish in the coming year. She is a Christian unlike the Parish Priest who would be more suited to hanging around street corners with the bully boys because that is the only way he knows how to act. He is also a total WIMP for the past 3 years when I serve the coffee in the Parish Centre he will not even take a cup of coffee from me as he would have to speak to me to ask for it but makes a big point of calling over one of the other ladies or a Parishioner to go and get him a cup in the coffee dock because I am not worthy to serve him or he would not touch a cup that the Parish LEPER has touched.

I don't know how long you have been a Priest Father but have you EVER IN YOUR LIFE in the Church met with anyone as wimpish, rude and pigheaded as this Parish Priest of ours?????

I live just a few hundred yards from the Church and it is my Parish and I am not leaving it to go to one of the other three Churches in the town because of this Devil's Disciple.

When the Iraq War ended I approached him a few years ago and asked if he could not come to his senses and we could shake hands, move on and I return to my job. Letter from Parish Solicitors informed me that asking that was harrassment and intimidation.

Now we have another war going on between Israel and Palestine which in his homily he mentioned today plus all about reconciliation which he mentions every day at Mass but he is the one who is at fault in all of this yet thinks others should lick his shoes and seek his foregiveness yet if you approach him or even look at him you either get a visit from two special branch detectives from Bray Gardai who come up to your home at his request by phone OR a letter from his Solicitors. It is an absolute no win situation.

How has he got the brass neck to preach of reconciliation and forgiveness when he is the worst tyrant in the Church that I know of. He does what he likes, to who he likes, when he likes. Nobody in authority gives a damn as to what he does. Is the Irish Catholic Church in such a sad, sad, pathetic state that we have to put up with Priests like that in charge of our Parish.

I thought all the jobs for life were gone. I thought you had to earn the respect of those you serve as their Pastor and not hoodwink and brainwash them into submission with years of psychology training.

This man is in denial that he is not in charge of the whole Church. His Grace Diarmuid Martin had better watch out or one day he will return from a drive and find Very Reverend Fr. Laurence White PP installed in Archbishop's House.

On two occasions I was totally humiliated in front of the whole Church full of people when a) I attended a special mass with a friend and we were in row 5. When he saw us there he ordered us to move back about 8 or 10 rows and said the seats were reserved which was untrue. All the rows between where we were and where we moved to remained empty and it was an embarrassment to be ORDERED to move back. That lady is RIP since and would not have her funeral in the Parish Church because of this humiliation and other dealings with the Archbishop over the case.

The other occasion was when I crossed the Altar before Mass to check a Mass I had booked in the Sacristy and was ORDERED back to my seat by the PP in front of everyone. After Mass I went to the Sacristy to be shouted at and ordered to leave but the Parish Office was closed so I had nowhere else to make the enquiry.


Do you father have any useful suggestions as to how to remedy things for once and for all? Our war in the Parish is likely to last long beyond the one in Iraq and the Middle East which is pathetic for an supposedly educated man who preaches reconciliation!!!!!!!!!
