Facing the flock (The Washington Post)
By Terrence McCoy- This is a “deep dive” with Fr. Brian Christensen, a pastor in Rapid City, SD whose assistant priest was imprisoned for sexual abuse of a minor. It follows Fr. Christensen as he visits his fellow priest in jail and tries to minister to the community that has been deeply wounded by the priest’s actions. It is a piece that is sympathetic to the challenges Fr. Christensen faces and shows the complexity of the scandal.
