So I have a story about a priest. I was in college living at a Newman Center on campus (in the US). I feel like I should say something but not sure if it’s worth it.
I grew up in a small midwestern town. During college (while I was living at the Newman center) my buddies and I would occasionally sneak out to a hotel along the interstate (which was a few miles outside of town) and hang out in the hot tub. One particular night, we snuck in to the hotel hot tub and to our surprise, we saw our priest…sitting in the hot tub with another guy (young, about our age). It was awkward (we were living with the guy) and he quickly got up and left.
I never had much thought on the encounter until recently. Right now he is a priest assigned to a local catholic school which is 8-12 grade. Looking back I think it’s quite clear what was going on. Should I say something? If so, to who? Seems to me I have very little to go on and not sure I should even say anything. But given the news recently, I should probably let someone know, right?
