Unholy Silence by Father Kevin Lee


After six years of seminary training I worked as a celibate priest for the past 20 years with the Catholic Diocese of Paramatta.  During that time I made multiple complaints to the Catholic Church hierarchy, as well as numerous police reports regarding fellow priests and Brothers who I believed were paedophiles, openly gay, or corrupt. To this date, very little action was taken against these alleged offenders.

In 2011 I married and decided to conceal the fact I was married, to prove to people just how easy it was to live a secret double life as a priest, something until then the Catholic hierarchy refuted, saying they monitor their priests too closely for that to occur.

When I broke news of my marriage to the media, and that I was writing a book exposing these priests, I was sacked.

My meagre stipend of a little over $250 a week was stopped immediately, my church credit card cancelled, my health cover cancelled, my life insurance stopped, and my personal bank account with $77 left was closed by the Church!

Even my remaining personal possessions were inacessible, as they changed all the locks on the house I built, preventing me from even gaining access to my own pets!

I was financially destitute.

My book “Unholy Silence”, due for publication in 2013, is where I am about to take the veil off the tabernacle and let you know what happens on the inside of the cloisters.

My work in continuing to expose alleged paedophiles and child-abusing Catholic priests and Brothers, and also caring for victims has become a full-time job.

But now as a married man, I also have a wife and two step-children to provide for.  Victims continue to come forward, people who need counselling and support.  Please help me continue full-time in this ministry by contributing towards a salary, staffing costs, office costs and other bills associated with my work to try to stamp out child-abuse in Catholic churches, and to make the Catholic education system a safer place for all our children.

Please donate to GoFund Me & you will enable me to continue in this vital work. Thank you.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
