LAS VEGAS — Feeney previously worked in the diocese of Las Vegas, and he was assigned to Saint Frances de Sales Church from March 1985 through November 1986.
“We are concerned that Father Feeney was permitted to live and work here in Las Vegas after there were dozens of credible allegations made against him in Wisconsin,” Blaine said.
She hopes by releasing his picture, the bishop will give full disclosure of any complaints, and possibly, more victims will come forward.
A man has come forward claiming he is a victim of convicted pedophile priest, 81-year-old John Patrick Feeney.
He was joined by the Survivors Network of people Abused by Priests who said Feeney served as a priest in Las Vegas in the mid 1980s.
“We are all gathered here today because of the shocking news we learned yesterday regarding a priest, Father John Feeney,” said SNAP spokeswoman Barbara Blaine.
Blaine and a number of protestors out in front of Guardian Angel Cathedral at 302 Cathedral Way near Las Vegas Boulevard and Desert Inn Road claimed Feeney may have victims in Las Vegas.
Feeney is serving 15 years in prison for sexually molesting two young brothers in Wisconsin back in the 1970s.
