Healesville’s pedophile priest defrocked

A FORMER Healesville priest found guilty of sex abuse has been defrocked by the Vatican.

Paul Pavlou, a priest and teacher at St Brigid’s parish from 2005 to 2006, pleaded guilty in 2009 to one charge of committing an indecent act with a 14-year-old boy and another charge of possessing child pornography.

Melbourne Vicar-General Bishop Les Tomlinson confirmed that Pavlou had been officially removed from the priesthood.

A Healesville father, whose son was abused by convicted paedophile priest David Daniel – also a priest at St Brigid’s in the 1990s – said it was about time Pavlou was stripped of his right to be called a priest.

“It should have been done as soon as Pavlou was convicted,” the man said.

The father said the Catholic Church needed to adopt a policy of truth so children were protected.

Broken Rites victim support group spokesman Dr Bernard Barrett said most church abuse victims remained silent, expecting they would not be believed.
