The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported about the suit this week concerning sexual abuse by Rev. Thomas Stitts, a priest who at the time was assigned to Our Lady of Grace church in Edina. This abuse took place in the late 60’s and early 70’s. There were a number of other posts about this filing:
- The Pioneer Press reported that Stitts later worked at Guardian Angels Church in Hastings, now known as St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and at Blessed Sacrament in St. Paul, St. Leo’s, St. George’s in Long Lake and St. John the Baptist in New Brighton, where he died of cancer in 1985 at age 50.
- The complaint has been posted on line.
- There is also the original Press Release about the suit from Anderson and Associates.
