Fr Theta (deceased)

One in Four

A complaint against Fr Theta was received by the diocese in July 2003. A man called Don said that when he broke his leg at the age of 14, Fr Theta paid for a trip to Lourdes for him and accompanied him on the trip.

He said that the priest booked them into one room in a hotel in Dublin on the way home and pushed their beds together and kissed him on the mouth. The man believes that Fr Theta was attempting to rape him and he has since suffered from depression and needed counselling.
