Police raid on Pell's city office


January 21, 2005

DETECTIVES investigating a sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church raided the offices of the Archbishop of Sydney.

Letters between Archbishop George Pell and a young man abused by a priest 20 years ago were seized.

The police raid came to light yesterday as the priest, Terence Norman Goodall, admitted sex crimes.

The victim, speaking exclusively to The Daily Telegraph, last night said: "What this priest did was destroy my trust in faith, my trust in religion, and my once deep commitment to God."
