Abused by Father Valmaggia, I Got Father Pinkman Removed Instantly

Comboni Missionaries

Francis Barnes has told us his story and it is in the Boys’ Stories Section.

He reveals how he was abused by Father Domenico Valmaggia and managed to resist Father John Pinkman’s advances.

He also says that other priests must have known what had happened and reveals how Father Fulvi helped him to put his case together before handing it over to a weeping Father John Fraser.

  1. There are Comboni missionaries today that were seminarians at Mirfield during the period that sexual abuse was taking place. They have stated as far as I understand that they are not aware of any abuse ever happening at Mirfield.

    I wonder if any Mirfield seminarians after being abused by Vallmaghia or Pinkman went on to become Comboni missionaries.

    I am sure very sure there are.
