Regarding Father Michael Suhy

Issued November 17, 2020

The Department of Communications shares the following statement issued by Director of Public Affairs, Ned McGrath:

There is nothing more to offer regarding the removal of Fr. Michael Suhy as pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish beyond what was set forth in Auxiliary Bishop Gerard Battersby’s statement on November 17. Following a months-long process, that administrative action “…was believed necessary for Fr. Suhy’s well-being, and also for the well-being of the parish, parishioners, and school.” Speculation or opinions on other motivations ignore the facts, are grossly in error and distract from the reality of the matter.
