  • SPECIAL REQUEST from the ATTORNEY GENERAL

      A letter dated October 18, 2018, was sent to me and all pastors of Catholic parishes in the State of Michigan and copied to the respective Bishops.  It states that investigators from the Department of the Attorney General and the Michigan State Police executed a search warrant of the seven Diocese obtaining relevant documents for the investigation into sexual abuse and assault by Catholic priest of children and others as well as the concealment of these crimes.  The investigation goes back to January of 1950.*
     
      In light of this, the Department would like to give every victim of abuse by a priest, or those with information relating to the investigation of abuse and coverup, the ability to share more information on the Attorney General toll-free hotline at 844-324-3374 (Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm) or sent information by email, through the following link:
     
    https://www.michigan.gov/ag and select “Learn More” in the Open Investigations section.
     
      The identity and information provided by any victim shall remain confidential during the course of our investigation.
     
      The Attorney General hopes to disseminate this contact phone number and email link as broadly as possible.  This contact information is included in our parish bulletin on the last weekend of October.  The purpose of this investigation is to prosecute any crimes that occurred and to identify any and all perpetrators, whether or not they can be prosecuted, so that those who have survived these crimes may heal and to guarantee that not one will be victimized again.
     
      I offer my complete cooperation and comply with this request.
     
    Sincerely, Fr. Robert Creagan
     
    *Since the Dioceses of Gaylord and Kalamazoo were founded in 1971, anything that occurred in a particular parish would go back to the original diocese.  For example, anything in Berrien County before July of 1971 would refer back to the Diocese of Lansing.
