Community concern over St. John Vianney, a psychiatric treatment facility for priests, was addressed last night during a Downingtown Council meeting. The discussion was prompted by a recent incident of a patient trespassing on Bishop Shanahan property during school hours.
Unlike most other treatment centers, St. John Vianney allows “approved” patients to leave their premises to walk through the neighborhood.
Please note it was a parent who finally called the police after the archdiocesan high school administration neglected to take action in regard to her concerns. Please view this Fox29 news segment from last night. More to come.
