...just in case they decided to keep playing games, which of
course they did.
That meeting only happens if they believe you.
If it happened.
And that should be all you need to know.
However, given the Smear Campaign the Archdiocese of St. Louis is running against
me, and what you might have heard about me, let me give you a number of other reasons to believe me.

Priest Sex Abuse Survivor Says Trauma Lingers — in which a
spokesman for the Archdiocese of St. Louis said I was lying and my
story changed "multiple times" — I received a DM via one of my
Twitter accounts from a survivor I'll call R...
Hello Chris my name is R, I graduated from Immacolata in
19__, was a alter boy and had to get “hair cuts” from Fr. Valentine
in his bedroom, so I unfortunately know too. What angers me as much
is several times leaving Valentines bedroom, fr. Timothy Dolan, now
Cardinal Dolan lived in the room next door & would be standing right
there & never did anything
I've talked about how I came forward in early March 2002 and...
I went to Immacolata parish and school 1976–1979. I knew Fr.
Valentine (and Cardinal Dolan, then Fr. Dolan, there at the same
time) well. Fr. Valentine was known throughout SLU High and
other private high schools and even SLU because kids at
Immacolata would share with their older siblings. His behavior
with the boys was always creepy and highly suspect. I told my
parents and some other girls told their parents too, but we were
blown off. I even told a couple of teachers I suspected
inappropriate behavior (hugging boys waaaay to long, then
rubbing their chests, not to mention the constant attempts at
wrestling). The boys I asked always denied abuse, but admitted
to hating the hugging and touching.
While reading the comments is generally a mistake in life, I've
learned it is one way to find fellow survivors.
(Fr. LeRoy Valentine) was a deacon at St. Margaret Mary in south
St. Louis county - I was 15 yrs. old. He was taking me home when
he parked in front of my and tried to molest me, 20 years later
he performed a funeral mass I was attending. That was the next
time I'd thought about it and I wish I hadn't.
In 1975 when he was still a deacon (Fr. LeRoy Valentine) tried to molest me while
parked in front of my parents house (he was dropping me off
after a CYC event). The story is
longer and complicated but what is nagging now is the desire to
say I’m sorry to those who were abused after me.
I knew Fr Valentine when he was at IHM in the city in 93.
At 16 I knew something was wrong with him.
My sisters bestie
I think was abused by him. He was in the class above her.
There were 3 boys.
That’s all M would say.
train wreck of M's life...I strongly suspect Valentine got him.
I have a vague memory of CYC/youth group. He was in charge.
It was strange. He had us play some game...with
lifesavers...where you passed them between each others lips.
Like fake kissing almost.
It’s so strange I want to believe
it’s not real.
I never went back.
died in November 2016...from diabetes complications. He never took
care of himself properly.
M never admitted it. The most I got
out of him was that he felt guilty that Valentine picked his friend.
There was a baseball game Valentine took the 3 of them to.
Pray, pay, and Obey.
He was at St Gabriel before IHM.
I remember one of my
classmates gushing about him and I was like there is something
*wrong* with him.
And there but for the grace of God...I’m a
girl...I gave him a ride as a 16 yr old girl...so naive.
