San Diego Diocese’s Statement Regarding New Lawsuits

Comment About Lawsuits Diocese 01.02.2020

Letter to Pastors and Parishes – January 1 2020 (1) (1)

SAN DIEGO (Jan. 2, 2020) –While we can’t respond to any specifics involved in these
lawsuits, five of the six men mentioned in today’s news conference are known sexual predators
whose names have been published on our website. All of the men are dead. Two of them
belong to Catholic religious orders (Koerner and Marron) and were not San Diego diocesan
priests. The sixth, Alexander Pinter, came from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, was briefly in San
Diego in the early 1960’s, but eventually moved to the Diocese of Oakland. Both dioceses have
published Pinter’s name on their list of accused priests, but no complaint about Pinter was ever
received in the Diocese of San Diego.
At least one of these men was rightfully sent to prison for his crimes. Our hearts and
prayers and deepest apologies go out to their victims and all victims of clergy sex abuse.
Regardless of the legal issues involved, we have a moral obligation to provide assistance
to any victim-survivor of that abuse and we would urge their attorney to contact us so that
counseling can be arranged at our expense. There are no prior conditions and the offer of
counseling stands regardless of any lawsuit against the diocese.
The sexual abuse of minors is evil, regardless of when it happens. As a result of various
reforms in 2002 and earlier, including mandatory Safe Environment training for clergy and all
church workers, annual age-appropriate safety training for students in Catholic schools and
religious education, enhanced criminal background checks and enhanced awareness and
vigilance, no new incidents of abuse have been reported to the diocese in nearly two decades.
Details about the steps the diocese has taken to prevent and report abuse can be found
on our website at
Finally, we would also invite any victim-survivor of sexual abuse to participate in the
Independent Compensation Program established last fall as an additional avenue they can use
to pursue their legal claims. There are no costs or obligation to victims. If they go through the
program and reject the compensation offer, they receive, they have not given up their right to
pursue their claim in the courts. In most cases, a qualifying victim-survivor will receive an offer
within 90 days of their claim being finalized.

Carmen Garcia
Guest Speaker
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
Becoming a Catholic in her early 20’s is absolutely the most important event in Carmen’s life. Besides being the mother of three grown daughters, she is the grandmother of ten, and happily married to a wonderful Catholic man. Carmen served fourteen years as principal at St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School, followed by eight years as assistant superintendent of Elementary Schools for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. She currently teaches Theology and is an assistant principal at a Catholic High School in Santa Maria, California. It all sounds so lovely and sweet. How did a girl raised in Godless chaos and shame come to be able to write the above statements? God is mighty and His hand is not too short to save as evidenced by the grace-filled conversion of Carmen Garcia against all worldly odds. Carmen lives in Santa Maria, California with her husband and currently serves on the Santa Maria Magnificat Chapter team as Historian. Come hear this inspiring story of conversion. You won’t want to miss this one. Don’t forget to invite a friend.
                      “My soul magnifies the Lord,
   my spirit finds joy in God my Savior … ”  Lk 1:46-49


In these words of the Magnificat, Mary proclaimed to Elizabeth her gratitude for the wonderful action of God in her life.  Please join us at abreakfast for Catholic women of the San Diego Diocese where we will share together in that same spirit of gratitude and praise of God.   After a meal, there will be a time of prayer for the needs of all present and an opportunity to hear one woman’s experience of the transforming love of Christ in her own life. 


Please plan to come and bring a friend to rejoice in the presence of the Lord.


“Glorify the Lord with me. 

              Let us together extol His name.”    Ps 34:4
