This letter is to inform you of difficult news the Diocese of Calgary recently shared with our community. Please see the attached information that was distributed with affected parishes yesterday.
We have been made aware that Bishop McGrattan has removed Fr. Malcolm D’Souza from St. Bernard's and Assumption parishes and placed him on administrative leave following these very serious allegations. Both the Church and the authorities are taking this matter extremely seriously. We have no indication that any of these allegations had connections to our schools.
As always, delivering quality education in a supportive, safe and caring, faith-based learning environment remains our top priority at the Calgary Catholic School District. We are guided in our actions and decisions by our commitment to student wellness and success.
If you have any questions or concerns, please refer to the attached statement from the Diocese of Calgary.
Mr. J.B. Piechotta
St. Kateri Tekakwitha School
