Why No Kobat on Diocese of Crookston List?

This week, there is a new list from from the priests of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate  which included the name PAUL KABAT.  Looking at the disclosure of assignments is:

He worked in the Diocese.   The name should be on the Crookston list and answers about his actions in the Diocese should be disclosed.

The original Crookston list did include JAMES VINCENT FITZGERALD  who was on the Oblate list.

Considering the importance of these lists and the absence of all names there are a lot of questions to be answered.

Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders needs to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to know that there is help out there.
