On Patti Arroyo's K57 radio talk show, Wednesday, October 30, 2013, Arroyo confirmed that it was she who originally brought up the issue that Fr. Paul Gofigan's dismissal as pastor from Santa Barbara parish was related to his opposition to the institution of the Neocatechumenal Way in his parish.

Arroyo went on to say that she even invited Rohr to comment on that perspective but that Rohr "did not bite".

This is exactly true, so the allegation that Rohr instigated the rumor about that connection is FALSE and so is the allegation that Arroyo was Rohr's accomplice.

So either Arroyo is lying or somebody else is. Arroyo is easily accessible for verification. She's normally on the air Monday through Friday, 10am to 12pm, on K57. The phone number is 477-5757.

And related to that, a person close to Fr. Paul relayed that Fr. Paul had met twice with representatives from the Neocatechumenal Way about starting up a community in his parish. According to the source, Fr. Paul agreed on the condition that any Mass/Eucharist be held in the church. The representatives from the Way refused to accept this condition.
