MEMORANDUM
July
15.
1991
TO:Cardinal
Mahony
CONfiDrNTIA.L
FROM:
Father
Timothy
Dyer
RE:
Fr.
Lynn
Caffoe
I
.spoke
with
Dr.
REDACTED
following
Fr.
Caffoe'
s
evaluation.
He
told
me
he
was
at
some
risk
for
depression·and
there
was
even
some
indication
that
he
could
become
suicidal--
though
that
.was
not the.case
at
present.
I
did,
however,
make
Fr.
Kane
aware
of.
the
situationand
hehas
been
very
solicitous.
and
caring
in
Fr.
Caffoe's
regard."
Dr.
REDACTED
predicted resistance
and anger
(which
he
said
was "1argely
selfprotective")
from
Fr.
Caffoe
and
that's
exactly
what
we
got.
Fr.
Richey
and
I
met
with
Fr.
Caffoe
on
July
1st.
I
presented
him
with
need
to
go
to
residential
therapy
in
lightof
the St.
Luke's report.
He
proceededto
tear
the report
apart
--
making
a
paragraph
by
paragraph
denial
of
their
assessment.
He
said
there
was
no-
way
in
the
world
he
would
go
back
there
--
calling
the
place
a
"looney
bin"
and
saying
it
would
destroy
him. He·
declared
that
although
you
said
thetherapy
was
a
nmust",
it
was
for
him
a
matter
of
conscience
not
to
allow
himself
to
be ruined
bygoing
to
St.
Luke's.
·
Fr.
Caffoe,
continuesto
impugn:
everyone
who
has
given
any
testimony
about
his behavior.
Fr.
Vadacherry
came
to
see
me
during
the
retreat
to
report
that
during
their years together,
Fr.
Caffoe
had
taken boysto
his
·room
"hundreds
of
times"
--
always
bolt locking
his
door
from
the
inside.
He
alSo
gave
an
example
of having seen
Fr.
Caffoe
with
his
arms
around
a 16
year-oldboy
--
his
hands on the boy's
"buttocks,
massaging them.
Upon
my
presenting
this
to
Fr.
Caffee,
he
denied
it
and
broke
into
a
tirade
.about
Fr.
Vadacherry.That
was
similar
to
his
reaction to
the
testimony
of
David
Ayotte
(intern
at
St.
James)as
well
as
to
that of
Fr.
Nichols
and
Sr.
Mary
Margaret.
Fr.
Nichols
reports
to
me
that
Fr.
Caffoe
breached
the
5/13/91"agreement"
(attached)
which
he signed.
He
had
a
minor
boy
in
the
truck
with
him
as
he
made
several
trips
back
and forth
from
St.
James
to
St.
Maria
Goretti's
while
moving
out.
Fr.
Nichols
further
says
that
Fr.
Caffoe
upon leaving
had
still
not
come
up
with
marriage
and
adult
baptismal
data for the
parish records
.
During
five
yearsof directing
RCIA
at
St.
James,
he
failed
to record
any
of
the
60
adult
baptisms
and
Fr.
Nichols
estimates
there
are
nearly
100mar:riages
he
has
not
documented.
At
this point
Fr.
Caffoe
is
unassignable.
He
does
not
complete
the
ordinary
functions expected of
a
parish priest,
his
anger
is
intolerable,
