Archbishop Carlson tells parish of reports of abuse by now-deceased pastor

A letter from Archbishop Robert J. Carlson was read at Masses at St. Joseph Parish in Josephville March 12-13 to bring awareness to several reports of abuse by Father John Wieberg, pastor there from 1950-61. Father Wieberg died in 1963. The reports were deemed credible by the archdiocesan Review Board, which met with several individuals who reported that they were sexually abused by Father Wieberg nearly 50 years ago.
