This three-part series capped four years of research on one of the Catholic Church's touchiest subjects: the high prevalence of AIDS among priests. An examination of death certificates and church records, supplemented by interviews with hundreds of priests, religious figures and AIDS experts nation-wide, revealed priests may be dying of AIDS at a higher rate than the general population. In November the Star did a follow-up in which the paper addressed the Catholic Church's reaction to the series, as well as new information about the issue.
