Letter to the Editor: December 11, 2013


To the Editor:
I was deeply saddened to read your article on the front page, Nov. 27, about a much-loved and respected priest, Fr. Mark Huberty, who previously served us at St. Timothy Church.
There are those of us who knew him and he became a welcome guest and a wonderful spiritual advisor to our families.
I do not believe this charge against him. You chose to repeat the words of the major newspapers and add to the terrible charge against him. Why is the woman involved not named, but protected?
Your article read like a foregone conclusion that he was guilty.
Sadly, Fr. Huberty will have this horrid event hanging over him.
I hope there are many others willing to support this fine priest. I make no apologies for my faith in him.
