The church janitor who reportedly posed as a youth leader and sexually assaulted three underage girls will soon face District Court.

Convicted sex offender James David Jaure is faced with five new charges involving sexual abuse of a minor.

Is it just me?

Just to be clear, everyone who likes to bash the Catholic Church, that this did NOT happen in a Catholic Church.

I won't mention the denomination, because the point is not to disparage that denomination.

By the way, in the Dioceses of San Jose, ALL volunteers must undergo child protection training, and ALL volunteers that might even incidentally - EVEN MOMENTARILY - be in contact with children (aka run the cash register at a bake sale) must be fingerprinted and have a background check run on them.

It said “Highland Park Community Church” so that could be?? Basically anything but Catholic because “Catholic” was NOT in the name.

I am going to assume this is the church. You tell me what they are because I can’t tell.
