Public Notice of the Class Action

A Class Action lawsuit was filed in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court in August 2018 regarding sexual abuse claims against priests of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. The class action was certified at the end of March, and we now enter a notification phase as part of this legal action.

Our parish is required by law to post an electronic notice of the option to opt-out of the class action on our website. That is, individuals who allege they have been sexually abused by a priest of the Archdiocese have the right to opt-out of this legal process.
