A holy priest
I was very surprised to see the letter about Msgr. William Higgins in the Denver Catholic Register of July 14.
I was a young girl in the 50s attending St. Philomena School and church. I remember monsignor very well. It was very saddening to read this story. I had no idea that anyone would make such a claim against him. He was nothing but very holy and priestly as far as I am concerned.
Often I have thought of the priests who were assigned to St. Philomena, especially Father James O’Malley, who came to the school for confessions before First Friday and to give out report cards. How sad for that woman to say such a terrible thing about monsignor.
