Monsignor Thomas Doyle, who served as a priest for 59 years, much of that time for St. James the Less Catholic Church in La Crescenta, passed away on Aug. 5. He was 83 years old. The cause of death was not made public. During the last seven years, Doyle lived at St. James, where he continued to assist the clergy with masses and confessions. Danette Erickson, who serves on the Crescenta Valley Town Council and has been a parishioner of the church for decades, said she was grateful to attend one of Doyle's last masses during a recent week in July.

In a first of its kind ruling, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has handed down a decision that four people who allege sexual abuse by a former associate pastor of St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church in La Cañada will be allowed to seek punitive damages against the Los Angeles Archdiocese. Judge Haley J. Fomholz ruled May 23 that punitive damages can be sought against the Archdiocese for failing to protect the four from the accused predator. The case concerns Father Lynn Caffoe, 61, who has been accused of molesting children from 1975 to 1991.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Coming closer to God doesn't necessarily require become miserable in the process, Father Glenn Sequeira thinks. The priest of Holy Family Catholic Church has been speaking to his congregation about Lent, the period between Ash Wednesday and Easter. It's a time of reflection, during which Christians are supposed to live in a more sober and contemplative fashion than they might during the rest of the year. Fasting and other forms of penance are traditional activities during Lent.

Charles Unger Can a priest who claims he is being punished for turning in a fellow priest who was having sex with an altar boy sue his local Catholic diocese for defamation? The state appellate court in San Francisco says yes. Here you have two competing interests. There is a state law that requires members of the clergy to report incidents of child abuse. On the other side, you have the rights of church officials to discipline their priests without court review.

The "Book of Daniel" on NBC last Friday has raised a few fundamentalist eyebrows. Some stations have even pulled it from their schedule. The uproar began before it was actually aired. The story is about an Episcopal priest, the church, his very dysfunctional family and an embezzlement. Oh, yes, there is one other thing, the priest has periodical visits from Jesus Christ. Let me first say I am a Christian and an Episcopalian. I enjoyed the first episode. Father Daniel Webster, played by Aidian Quinn, has a very disturbed family.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has quietly added two dozen priests and brothers to its list of clergy accused of child molestation. Though the church deems the allegations against the men credible, the archdiocese has declined to release information about the complaints, including the number of accusers, the dates of the alleged abuse and the parishes where the men worked. The names were disclosed in a two-page report posted on the archdiocese's website last month alongside 12,000 pages of internal records related to its handling of abuse claims.

The following list is based on 122 priests' personnel files that were released from the Los Angeles Roman Catholic Archdiocese. The clergymen were named in a 2007 settlement in which the archdiocese agreed to pay $660 million to settle hundreds of sex abuse and molestation claims. The documents include personnel files of alleged abusers, documents detailing sex abuse allegations, their parish assignments, internal memos and psychological evaluations. Included in the files were 29 priests who had connections to parishes in Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena and the foothill region.

Editor's Note: Numerous instances of plagiarism have been discovered in Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column, which ran in the News- Press from September 2003 to September 2011. In those columns where plagiarism has been found, a For the Record specifying the details will be appended to the piece. Before contemplating what this new year holds in store, I'd like to take a look back at a few items in this column that merit, in my mind, a second look, or that perhaps at the time suggested a follow-up, starting with a certain encounter I had with a local police officer.

A Roman Catholic priest in South Carolina recently told parishioners that they should not take Holy Communion if they voted for Sen. Barack Obama because of the president-elect’s stance on abortion. Doing so, according to the Rev. Jay Scott Newman, “constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil.” The church’s senior officer in the state promptly reprimanded him, saying the church should give the same treatment to all members regardless of their partisan beliefs.
