Update on an embattled parish.
Remember the Archdiocese of Boston's questionable ouster last fall of the Rev. Walter Cuenin, the popular liberal priest in Newton who had openly challenged the archdiocese's coverup of clergy sexual abuse? There are two updates worth noting: Cuenin has been appointed Catholic chaplain at Brandeis University — and the archdiocesan spokesman who replaced Cuenin at the Newton parish he had served for twelve years has stepped down after only four months. Who couldn't see this coming?
("Pastor whose ouster caused rift is given Brandeis post," Michael Paulson, Boston Globe 1.31.06, reg req'd; "New pastor will leave embattled Newton parish," Matt Viser and Michael Paulson, Boston Globe 2.1.06, reg req'd)
