Catholics4Change broke the news in March 2018 that Father Armand Garcia was placed on administrative leave while being investigated for possible misconduct with minors. At that time the Archdiocese made an announcement to the parish St. Martin of Tours, but there was no press release or announcement to the local press.

Today we share the news that Garcia has been arrested and is facing charges of rape, corruption of a minor and sexual abuse of a minor. The alleged crimes took place in 2014.

We pray for any child who was harmed and we pray for justice.

  1. For what reason did Garcia take a personal leave from 2010-2011? Should it have acted to inform the Archdiocese as to potential problems with him? Might the crimes he is accused of, now, been avoided?
