Subject: To: Bishop of Diocese of Orange – parish employee child sexual abuse in Haiti

 

February 5, 2013

Most Rev. Kevin Vann
Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange
2811  East Villa Real Drive
Orange, California 92867

Dear Bishop Vann,

I am writing to you with a sense of urgency regarding Dee Orlowski, an employee of Santiago de Compostela Church, located within your diocese in Lake Forest, California.

http://www.santiagocatholicchurch.org/staff/

Please take immediate action to stop Ms. Orlowski from continuing to obstruct justice by her failure to report to church and law enforcement authorities about alleged sexual misconduct by a Catholic priest and a 12 year old Haitian boy at Pwoje Espwa in Les Cayes, Haiti.

Ms. Orlowski has known for many years that Fr. Marc Boisvert, O.M.I. has been accused of engaging in inappropriate sexual misconduct with children.

Child protection advocates are now raising serious questions about the methods by which an investigation was conducted at Pwoje Espwa concerning a child’s statement that the child slept with Fr. Boisvert in Fr. Boisvert’s bed.

(Please read the statement below)

Ms. Orlowski is resisting all efforts to get to the truth. In fact, her passive aggressive attitude is downright hostile.

Ms. Orlowski is identified on the Santiago de Compostela Church web site as the parish’s Facilities and Events Manager.

You need to remind Ms.Orlowski, Bishop Vann that, in her capacity as a Catholic Church employee, Ms. Orlowski is a designated mandated reporter and bound by the tenets of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

By way of background, Ms. Orlowski is a long time officer of the non-profit group (www.freethekids.org) that operates Pwoje Espwa. She leads groups and travels to Haiti on a regular basis.

In addition, Ms. Orlowski raises money from Santiago de Compostela parishioners on behalf of Free the Kids.

http://www.santiagocatholicchurch.org/theo-s-work/.. The mission of Theo’s Work is to offer support to Fr. Marc Boisvert’s orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti by means of fundraising and supporting him and his endeavors to feed, house, and educate orphans and abandoned boys. The orphanage houses more than 600 children. For more information on the work that Fr. Marc is doing in Haiti, please visit Theo’s Work Website. This ministry is open to all whose hearts are touched by this incredible priest and his beautiful children.

Sincerely,
Paul Kendrick

Haiti – Les Cayes : 12 YEAR OLD HAITIAN BOY SAID HE SLEPT WITH PRIEST IN PRIEST’S BED.
On several occasions in the early morning hours, a volunteer observed a young boy leaving the priest’s private residence, located on the grounds of a 600 child orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti.

When the volunteer asked the boy where he stays at night, the boy said that he sleeps with Fr. Marc in Fr. Marc’s bed.

“Father Marc” is Rev. Marc Boisvert, O.M.I., Founder and Executive Director of Pwoje Espwa Sud in Les Cayes, Haiti.

The volunteer immediately telephoned and emailed Dr. Cynthia DeSoi, the orphanage’s volunteer medical director and board member, with the information he received from the boy.

Two days later, Father Boisvert held a “mock trial” with the frightened boy seated on a high stool in the middle of Fr. Boisvert’s living room. Surrounding the boy was Boisvert, three of his employees and the volunteer whose presence was requested by Boisvert.

Under questioning, the orphanage official pressured the boy to say that he had instead only “dreamed” about sleeping in Boisvert’s bed.

Soon thereafter, the boy disappeared back into the streets of Les Cayes.

Dr. DeSoi, a U.S. citizen who practices medicine in Lewiston, Maine, travels frequently to Pwoje Espwa.

Boisvert is a U.S. citizen, a Roman Catholic priest and a member of the Oblate Missionaries of Mary Immaculate religious order headquartered in Port au Prince, Haiti.

Subject: Open Letter to William Commer – Pwoje Espwa Sud

February 2, 2013

William Commer
Chairman of the Board
Pwoje Espwa Sud
Les Cayes, Haiti

Dear Mr. Commer,

Why are you allowing Father Marc Boisvert to return to Pwoje Espwa in Haiti?

Child protection advocates have raised serious questions about allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct with children by Fr. Boisvert.

It is standard protocol in situations like this to remove the accused perpetrator from having any and all access to children until a formal investigation of the charges has been completed

It is my understanding that Fr. Marc returned to Pwoje Espwa Sud on Tuesday of this past week. Boisvert disappeared suddenly three weeks ago when advocates began asking questions.

You and your fellow board of directors are acting in a most irresponsible manner. It is becoming more and more obvious that you have been ignoring these type allegations against Boisvert for many, many years.

You have much to account for.

Perhaps you misunderstand my intentions. So, let me be very clear with you, Mr. Commer.

Child protection advocates are asking lots of reasonable questions about reports we have received about alleged sexual misconduct with minors by Fr.Boisvert.

It is your responsibility as the Chairman of the Board of Directors to respond to these charges in an open, transparent and truthful manner.

During the past few weeks, I have invited you and Jack Reynolds to call me to discuss the concerns about Boisvert.

You have not contacted me.

I can assure you, Mr.Commer, that the intensity of our advocacy will become unlike anything you have seen before.

Our voices will become louder, more intense and directed at anyone who has anything to do with Espwa.

That is, until such time as you begin to tell the truth and a professional investigation of Boisvert, the children, the staff and the Board of Directors has been completed.

Boisvert needs to he removed from Haiti today.

Your arrogance regarding this matter, Mr. Commer, is quite unbelievable. You have brought this upon yourself.

After all, we are talking about ensuring that children at Pwoje Espwa are safe and protected from being sexually abused.

I suppose the biggest question of all is why you are so resistant to our efforts.

Makes one wonder what you are hiding.

Sincerely,
Paul Kendrick

Les Cayes, Haiti
Dear Bishop Langlois,

I am writing to you today to solicit your help and to remind you of the promise you made to me when we met this past spring at the “Haiti One Table Conference” in Washington, D.C.

At the time, I spoke to you about a faulty investigation of alleged sexual misconduct with a child that occurred at Pwoje Espwa Sud, a 600 child orphanage, located in your Diocese of Les Cayes.

You promised to review the incident and determine the credibility of the investigation.

Unfortunately, I am bringing to your attention yet another incident of alleged sexual misconduct with a child at Pwoje Espwa Sud.

The details are provided in the statement below.

I look forward to your timely response.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Sweatt

Un garçon haïtien de 12 ans affirme qu’il dormait dans le lit d’un prêtre responsable d’un orphelinat aux Cayes.Posted: 16 Jan 2013 10:48 AM PST

Un garçon haïtien de 12 ans affirme qu’il dormait dans le lit d’un prêtre responsable d’un orphelinat aux Cayes.

À plusieurs reprises, très tôt le matin, un bénévole affirme avoir observé un jeune garçon quitter la résidence privée du prêtre, située sur le terrain d’un orphelinat de 600 enfants, dans la ville des Cayes, région Sud d’Haïti. Lorsque le volontaire demanda au garçon où il a passé la nuit, l’enfant lui a répondu qu’il dort avec le Frère Marc dans le même lit.

“Frère Marc” est le Pasteur Marc Boisvert, qui est Fondateur et Directeur Exécutif de Pwojè Espwa Sud aux Cayes, dans le Sud d’Haïti.

Scandalisé, le volontaire a immédiatement téléphoné et envoyé par courriel un message à Dr. Cynthia DESOI, Directeur médical bénévole de l’orphelinat et membre du Conseil d’administration du projet. Il lui a rapporté les déclarations de l’enfant qui prouvent qu’un comportement anormal se répète à l’intérieur de l’Orphelinat .

Deux jours plus tard, le Père Boisvert a organisé un “simulacre de procès” avec le garçon effrayé assis sur un tabouret, dans son salon. Le petit garçon s’est ainsi retrouvé entouré de Père Boisvert assisté de trois (3) de ses employés et des bénévoles dont la présence a été autorisée par l’accusé-juge.

Le petit orphelin a été forcé de reformuler sa déclaration, en disant qu’il avait plutôt «rêvé» de dormir dans le lit du Père Boisvert.

Peu de temps après, le garçon s’est retrouvé dans les rues de la ville des Cayes, puni pour avoir dit la vérité sur ses nuits passées dans le lit d’un Prête.

Dr DESOI est un citoyen américain qui pratique la médecine à Lewiston, dans l’état de Maine. Il se rend régulièrement à Pwojè Espwa, Les Cayes, Haiti.

Marc Boisvert est un prêtre catholique et un membre de la congrégation religieuse, l’Ordre des OBLAT des Haiti.
