IL- Victims News Conference re New Chicago Archbishop
Holding signs and childhood photos at a sidewalk news conference, clergy sex abuse victims and their supporters will:
– respond to Pope Francis' choice to head the Chicago archdiocese,
– make recommendations to him on what he should do first, and
– urge Chicago citizens and Catholics to remain vigilant and avoid complacency regarding the safety of kids.
Saturday, Sept. 20 at 10:15 a.m.
On the sidewalk outside the Chicago archdiocesan headquarters, 835 N. Rush Street (at E. Chestnut St.) in downtown Chicago
Two-four adults who belong to a self-help group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAPnetwork.org). Some were molested as kids; others are concerned Catholics.
The group will offer perspective on Chicago's new archbishop and recommend some “first steps” he should take as he assumes his new office.
