IGNATIUS GROUP___

Trial Date, July 6, 2015 – Hearts with Haiti & Michael Geilenfeld v. Paul Kendrick – U.S. Federal Court in Portland, ME – Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. presiding.

MICHAEL GEILENFELD, THE HAITI ORPHANAGE DIRECTOR WHO HAS FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST CHILD PROTECTION ACTIVIST, PAUL KENDRICK, WOULDN’T PASS THE CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF PORTLAND’S BACKGROUND CHECK.

If Michael Geilenfeld wanted today to volunteer at a parish or school in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland (ME) to teach a religious education class or chaperone a parish youth group to World Youth Day, he couldn’t do it.

Geilenfeld wouldn’t pass the background check necessary to work with young people in the Catholic Church in Maine or elsewhere.

Geilenfeld is a former Catholic Brother and member of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity.

Geilenfeld is currently the Executive Director of the St. Joseph’s Orphanages in Haiti.

It should be noted that Geilenfeld’s application to volunteer in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland would have been rejected long before Geilenfeld ever heard of Paul Kendrick.

During the past thirty years Geilenfeld has been accused on multiple occasions of physically and sexually abusing children in his care in Haiti.

ATTORNEY PETER DETROY, LEAD ATTORNEY FOR A MULTI ACCUSED CHILD MOLESTER IN HAITI, SAYS NO ONE EVER SAW ANYONE BEING SEXUALLY ABUSED BY MICHAEL GEILENFELD.

PAUL KENDRICK WANTS TO CALL DETROY’S LAW PARTNER AND FORMER CHEVERUS HIGH SCHOOL TRUSTEE, ATTORNEY JONATHAN BROGAN, TO THE WITNESS STAND.

BROGAN WILL TESTIFY THAT NO ONE EVER SAW ANYONE BEING SEXUALLY ABUSED BY FATHER JAMES TALBOT OR CHARLES MALIA AT CHEVERUS.

During his upcoming trial, Paul Kendrick will tell the jury how at his alms mater, Jesuit run Cheverus High School in Portland, ME, the sexual abuse of Cheverus students by two teacher/coaches, who worked together at Cheverus, went undetected for almost 20 years (according to Cheverus officials).

Jesuit priest, teacher/coach, Father James Talbot, and Cheverus teacher/track coach, Charles Malia, previously admitted to sexually abusing students at Cheverus (30 years for Malia).

Yet, during all these years, no one other than the victims; not a single teacher, not a single staff member, nor even one administrator has ever stepped forward to say that he or she observed the sexual abuse of a Cheverus student by Talbot or Malia.

Two young Haitian men tell about abuse at Michael Geilenfeld’s orphanage in Haiti

The interviews are conducted in French and Creyole.

Watch the video report.

Two young Haitians who have never spoken out before tell a CBC reporter of physical and sexual abuses at Michael Geilenfeld’s orphanage in Haiti (St. Joseph Home for Boys) and the threats and intimidation they have received not to talk about what happened there.

On May 8, 2015, the Haiti Ministry of Justice issued an order restricting Michael Geilenfeld’s travel to Haiti.

Sources in Haiti report that Geilenfeld arranged to cross the border into the Dominican Republic instead of risking detection by Haiti immigration officials at the airport in Port au Prince.

Paul knows no fear. Nothing but the best to him. Here’s hoping that justice prevails and Mr. Kendrick is vindicated for standing up for victims. Let these men have their day in court.

Seems the whole problem from the beginning was that Geilenfeld and Hearts with Haiti couldn’t shut Paul Kendrick up from speaking the truth and protecting these kids. Even a defamation suit can’t back him off. Paul Kendrick is incredibly brave. T

Go, Paul! Speak the truth! Geilenfeld must be so angry that he can’t silence you!

 

Yes, Judge Woodcock, I sent Rev. Bates the excerpts from her own emails in the hope that she would take notice of what she said and wrote in her role as a fiduciary for the safety and well being of orphaned children in Haiti in response to my warnings about the victims’ allegations of abuse (in one email, Bates tells another board member she is so angry at me that she’d like to leave a box of dirty kitty litter on my front porch / can you believe it?)

It goes without saying that when Rev. Bates’s email correspondence is revealed at trial, she and the President of Duke University will be humiliated.

To: Judge John Woodcock, Jr.

Dear Judge Woodcock,

I do not want my attorneys to spend even one minute responding to Plaintiffs’ attorneys letter to you (see
below), so I am writing to you on my own initiative.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys remind me of a certain brother, sister, or classmate whose most urgent priority in life is to
“tell” on their siblings or fellow students.

First, let’s keep our eye on the ball. This trial is about seven Haitian born men who will testify to the world
about the horrific physical and sexual violence inflicted upon them by Michael Geilenfeld when they were
children.

In a real sense, we are wasting time and money with the cumbersome particulars and details of the trial process.
Let’s just gather twelve of our neighbors and let them listen to the victims’ testimonies.

Mr. DeTroy and his associates cannot seem to help themselves from doing everything they can to deflect the
serious nature of the child abuse issues at hand and to stand in the way of a jury listening to the victims’
testimonies.

Rev. Sally Bates is Chaplain of Duke University’s School of Divinity.

She has a big job at Duke. She’s very savvy, perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

I want Rev. Sally Bates to be interrogated on the witness stand for days, even weeks, if that’s what it takes. I
want the world to know how Rev. Bates, the Chaplain of Duke University, with the full knowledge and
approval of the President of Duke University, responded to warnings and information about allegations of child
sexual abuse against the Director of an orphanage in Haiti, of which Rev. Bates served as a trustee and Duke
University provided in kind and financial support.

The emails that Attorney DeTroy et. al. are referring to in their letter are excerpts from Rev. Bates’s own emails.

No other party received these messages, just Rev. Bates.

Messrs. DeTroy, Pierce and Deane have repeated their same old and tired message to you in their grand letter,
but they are wrong.

They are deceiving you in but one more attempt to deflect the truth away from the essential fact that their client
is, indeed, a child molester who has inflicted horrific harm and injury upon poor and vulnerable children in
Haiti.

Yes, Judge Woodcock, I sent Rev. Bates the excerpts from her own emails in the hope that she would take
notice of what she said and wrote in her role as a fiduciary for the safety and well being of orphaned children in
Haiti in response to my warnings about the victims’ allegations of abuse (in one email, Bates tells another board
member she is so angry at me that she’d like to leave a box of dirty kitty litter on my front porch / can you
believe it?)

It goes without saying that when Rev. Bates’s email correspondence is revealed at trial, she and the President of
Duke University will be humiliated.

I keep hoping, perhaps beyond all hope, that people like Rev. Sally Bates will finally wake up, help those who
have been abused and work towards protecting innocent children in Haiti from abuse.

Sincerely,

Paul Kendrick
