MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A retired Catholic priest will talk more Tuesday about his work with a whistleblowers’ group that exposes sex abuse by clergy members.
The Reverend James Connell is a former official with the Milwaukee Archdiocese, and a former priest at two parishes in Sheboygan.
Now, he’s on the steering committee for the Catholic Whistle Blowers – a group of former priests and nuns who try to shed light on sex abuse, and the responses by church leaders.
Connell has urged the Milwaukee church and other groups to be more open about their handling of sex abuse cases.
He’ll talk more about his group Tuesday to the Milwaukee Press Club.
