Fr. Brian Joyce
Sr. Joanne Gallagher , our Pastoral Associate, was born and raised in Oakland, and entered the Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet after graduation from Holy Names High School. She has done graduate work at St. Mary's College, Santa Clara and Holy Names College. She has served in a number of parishes in Northern and Southern California. Most recently she served as principal at St. Perpetua's School in Lafayette for eight years and then for the past 18 years she was principal of Our Lady Queen of Angels School in New port Beach. Her responsibilities here will include welcoming new parishioners, integrating volunteers into parish life, developing a new Parish Directory, serving as liaison and resource to "Lifeworks" and, I'm sure as time goes on, much, much more.
Lawsuit Filed Against Oakland Diocese and Pleasant Hill Priest for Sexual Misconduct and Abuse of Parishioner Spanning Forty Years, 11 June 2003 [cached]
The priest, Father Brian Joyce, has been a national spokesperson for the Catholic Church, appearing on National Public Radio, and has been critical of priests who have molested children and the Church's response to such allegations in the past.The lawsuit claims that Father Brian Joyce, pastor of Christ the King Church in Pleasant Hill, used his position as a priest to lure SueDee McClelland into a sexual relationship that lasted from 1964 until June of 2002.
Joyce initiated this relationship even though McClelland was married and had four children.The relationship continued through several failed marriages and emotional problems that McClelland experienced, including hospitalizations following suicide attempts.The lawsuit claims that Joyce deceptively told McClelland what he was doing to her "was God's love" and the whole matter of their sexual relationship was between "them and God."Keeping this "secret" made the whole matter worse for McClelland, whose life started to quickly spiral downhill.
Joyce maintained the relationship though McClelland moved several times, and Joyce continued to maintain contact with McClelland through the Spring of 2002.In June of 2002, McClelland was watching with considerable interest the Bishop's conference on television.She was deeply impacted by the story of a priest who told of his having been molested by a priest and how he found himself with a gun to his head, contemplating suicide.She, too, had attempted suicide after being sexually molested by Joyce.McClelland suddenly realized that she had been abused all these years by Joyce.She wrote to him and stated: "And now I know why I was suicidal and why I have had so many failed relationships...Forty years of a terrible pattern is very difficult to change.I can't tell you the cost of my psychiatrists and medication, but it is huge.I also can't tell you why I was emotionally unable to work for many years, despite my degree from Berkeley and my life teaching credential.I cannot even begin to fathom the overall cost this has been on my whole life..." Joyce wrote back on June 18, 2002, admitting that he "obviously and wrongly" caused her "great pain and anguish."
After receiving Joyce's letter, McClelland met with officials of the Diocese of Oakland and informed them of Joyce's conduct vis-a-vis the 40 years of sexual abuse.Despite its express and widely publicized policies forbidding such conduct, and promises to take vigorous action to protect persons from such priests and sexual abuse, the DIOCESE has done nothing about Joyce who is reportedly a close personal friend of Bishop John Cummins.
