Express UK – A VICTIM of sex abuse by a depraved nun has told how she became pregnant by him when he was just 12. Edward Hayes is still fighting for answers from the Catholic Church.
He wanted to speak out over the Easter weekend to lift the lid on sexual abuse by nuns and encourage other victims to finally come forward after years of secret torment
While horrific historic sexual abuse of boys by priests has been widely exposed, he believes his case could be the “tip of the iceberg” in revealing how nuns may also have targeted vulnerable boys.
Mr Hayes’s ordeal over nearly three years happened at the former John Reynolds Home in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, run by The Franciscan Missionaries of St Joseph, a Catholic congregation of nuns.
He said: “I never thought I would hate people as much as I hate those in the Church for what they allowed to happen to me.
“They have acknowledged what happened but I don’t feel like I’ve ever had a proper apology from those in positions of power. I think they are terrified about what else might emerge.”
Edward, now a grandfather aged 76, fell victim to then 27-year-old Irish nun Sister Mary Conleth, real name Bessie Veronica Lawler, in the 1950s. She worked in the laundry room and asked her superiors for his assistance.
But the almost daily abuse ended abruptly when the nun fell pregnant and was sent back to Ireland in disgrace. Edward was sent to a hostel in Cumbria.
He has no idea what happened to the child he fathered and Sister Conleth is now dead.
But he has decided to waive his right to anonymity to expose the abuse and encourage fellow victims to confront their demons. He said: “I went through hell for the majority of my life, trying to hide what happened to me. Nobody should go through that.”
Edward, who now lives in Carlisle, was just 10 and known as Billy when he was put in the home after being neglected by his parents. Initially, he had viewed his new home as a blessing.
“It was nice to be somewhere warm, where I was eating food and having hot baths,” he said.
“My first years there created some great memories for me. I was a great student, I sang in the choir, I could read perfect Latin and was even playing football – being touted by the local football clubs.”
But his new life turned sour when Sister Conleth arrived around 1953 and sought him out.
Edward said: “I had barely started work there when it happened. I was still 12. She’d pull my trousers down. She’d push me to the floor and would lay on top of me.
“I hated doing it but she said she’d tell on me if I didn’t, that I’d been a bad boy and I’d be punished. She’d talk dirty to me. I would not let her kiss me. I thought babies were made by men kissing women.”

If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
