Notice Concerning Mr Clive Lynn

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin wishes to make it known that Clive Lynn, also known as Cathal O’ Lionn, formerly a priest of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe USA, was found guilty and dismissed from the clerical state on the 12th November, 2004 by Pope John Paul II, as a penalty for the sexual abuse of minors. He is forbidden to present himself as a priest, wear clerical attire or perform acts of ministry that are reserved to the sacred priesthood. The faithful are to be alerted in particular that Mr. Lynn or O’Lionn is not a priest in good standing and is consequently prohibited from celebrating the Eucharist or performing any priestly ministry.
