    MAKING ITS MARK

    ARCHDIOCESE FACING MORE LAWSUITS
    When will it end? Three more child sex abuse lawsuits were filed last week against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, including one that alleges that a monsignor who previously worked at Immaculate Conception Parish in Las Vegas sexually abused and raped a 6-year-old girl.
