Marie Mielke (Doe 20) Speaks Publicly About Abuse by Fr. Michael Keating

On January 12, 2015, Marie Mielke (Doe 20), courageously came forward to publicly discuss her sexual abuse at the hands of Michael Keating and how top officials at the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis mishandled the case between 2006 and 2013. Keating’s once secret priest file was also released to the public. In it, internal church documents show how church officials, especially Father Kevin McDonough, chose to protect Keating over Marie and other survivors.

Key documents from Keating’s file, the Amended Complaint, and other pertinent documents and statements are posted below.
