Stegeman said that “Glenmary fully cooperated with the authorities during the related investigation and informed the local law enforcement authority of the allegations against Father Glockner shortly after receiving them. With the investigation of civil authorities concluded, Glenmary, based on its own policies and procedures, will commission an investigation by an independent party.
“When completed the result of the investigation will be communicated to the President of Glenmary who will in turn share the result of the investigation with Glenmary’s Review Board. The Review Board will advise Glenmary’s Executive Council on whether or not they find the allegations to be credible.
“Until this process is completed, Father Glockner will continue to live at Glenmary’s residence in Fairfield, Ohio, and he will remain removed from public ministry.”
According to a statement in August by Laura Keener, spokeswoman for the Diocese, Glockner “has served the pastoral needs of Holy Redeemer Parish in Vanceburg, Kentucky as sacramental minister and parochial administrator,” since 2012.
“In those seven years, there have not been any allegations of inappropriate behavior against Father Glockner,” wrote Keener.
