I lived with PTSD for 40 years, after molestation by a Catholic priest at age five. Read my story as I write it here through 2015.

Faster Than the Speed of Life 
(What a pedophile priest survivor discovered when she took to the internet to seek justice. To be posted on line here at City of Angels 15 through 2015. First excerpt coming in January.)

April 2012:  Okay just called St. Peter Damian Church and said, “I'm Katy Jones and I'm in town for six weeks and wondered if you have boxes of stuff I can go through from the early years of the church say, 1949 to 1955.”  

I said, “My dad was an usher there then and my mom played the organ, so I was hoping I’d be able to find pictures or old news clippings about the church from that time.  I wondered if you have anything?”

She said “There is something in storage."  And then she asked, "What was your name again?"

My dang inability to lie clicked in, and before I knew it I said “Ebeling.  The family name is Ebeling.  His name was George, hers was Lucille.”

It seemed to be taking her a while to write that down in the silence from the other end of the phone, then she said, “Okay, I'll check into it and call you back.”

We'll see.

Yes, I filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Archdiocese last year, along with my sister, because we were molested in the fifties by just one of three pedophile priests at St. Peter Damian in Bartlett IL, but hey, my dad helped found this church.


My plan had been to show up in person and the phone call was just to find out when there was a person in the office who could show me boxes, as last time I went during posted office hours there was no one there. 

But now I said the name Ebeling to her on the phone.

We'll see if she calls back.  

I'm not good at subterfuge at all.

December 2014:  They never called.
