Father Vincent Kiss, Wagga Wagga – Call For Witnesses

Were you around the Catholic Diocese of Wagga Wagga between the mid-60s and late 1970s? We Need Your Help.

Koffels Solicitors and Barristers recently secured a significant legal victory in a case against the Catholic Diocese of Wagga Wagga on behalf of a survivor who endured sexual abuse at the hands of Father Vincent Kiss. The disturbing truth is that Kiss is known to have perpetrated these abuses between 1966 and 1979.

Father Vincent Kiss was a member of the clergy within the Catholic Diocese of Wagga Wagga and, alarmingly, was appointed as the Director of Youth. This role granted him extensive access to children within the Diocese, a deeply troubling fact that raises questions about the Diocese’s awareness and response to these grave offences.

In 1979, Kiss was convicted in Vanuatu for four counts of gross indecency. Despite this conviction, he was allowed to return to Australia and continued to serve as a priest within the Diocese of Wagga Wagga. It wasn’t until September 13, 2002, that justice finally caught up with him. Kiss was sentenced to ten and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to three charges of buggery and ten charges of indecent assault against teenage boys during his time as a priest. To this day, Kiss faces further charges, and his trial is set to commence on October 30, 2023.

  1. Kiss was a serial Pedro. Bernie Connell was just as bad and got off Scott free. He was police chaplain and they purposely submitted wrong dates to then court somConnell never squealed on the cops. He told me in 1&968 that some of the boys in blue were knocking off kids in the police cells. This was the worst example of manufactured police incompetence ever. Connell was given his freedom as a pay back. It was an elementary mistake of dates which any student of Aquinas could have verified to be totally wrong. Connell remains free. A few of my mates (victims) cannot believe it. The system has failed them. One drank himself to death. Bishop Carrol new all about what was going on and did nothing.mkiss used to change into swimmers in front of girls at the Hume Weir youth camps
