      "Mariano is a registered sex offender who lived at the Sacred Heart Jesuit
      Center above Los Gatos, where the alleged molestations occurred....Mariano has
      the unique distinction, however, of being a cross-dresser who was convicted of
      child molestation in 1998 for performing oral copulation on two teenage boys
      in Campbell while posing as a 25-year-old Hawaiian woman named "Kim."

      Prison term over, minister who took $4 million quickly returns to the pulpit
      11/30/03 "The Rev. Henry J. Lyons walked out of prison Sunday morning and
      headed directly back to the pulpit, telling worshippers he had erred but that
      time behind bars helped renew his faith. Lyons served nearly five years on grand
      theft and racketeering charges for using his former role as president of the
      National Baptist Convention to steal millions of dollars to finance his lavish
      lifestyle. The scheme fell apart after Lyons' wife set a fire at a home he
      had secretly bought with his mistress....Lyons, former pastor of Bethel
      Metropolitan Baptist Church, bilked $4 million from companies doing business with the
      National Baptist Convention, one of the nation's largest black church
      organizations." http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl

      Holy Unsuitable - Another priest--a former high school teacher at Bellarmine
      and pastor at a grammar school--is named in the sexual abuse suit filed on
      behalf of the mentally disabled men living up at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center. Was
      there a cover-up and will the Jesuits come clean? By Corinne Asturias "...in
      late March, when the Los Angeles Times reported that two mentally disabled men
      were suing the California Province for the Society of Jesus, which he
      oversees, for $10 million over alleged sexual abuse by priests living at the
      center....another priest in his care, Angel Crisostomo Mariano, was just added to the
      civil suit and accused of sexually abusing one of the mentally retarded men who
      worked as dishwashers at the center. Like some of the other priests named,
      Mariano is a registered sex offender who lived at the Sacred Heart Jesuit
      Center above Los Gatos, where the alleged molestations occurred....Mariano has the
      unique distinction, however, of being a cross-dresser who was convicted of
      child molestation in 1998 for performing oral copulation on two teenage boys in
      Campbell while posing as a 25-year-old Hawaiian woman named "Kim."
