That date was during the settlement negotiations in the Timeline: Weakland, Marcoux relationship, which ultimately resulted in our Archdiocese's $450,000 settlement.

    I always object when people use the $450,000. figure for the settlement. I doubt that the diocesan attorney was working for nothing? How much did the people of the archdiocese pay him?
