According to the plaintiff, “at certain times, Guzielek’s sexual abuse of the victim occurred during activities that were sponsored by or were a direct result of activities sponsored by, the Diocese and St. Adalbert’s, including when the victim was serving as an altar boy and worked at the parish – ringing the morning bells”.
