Another priest accused in Erie diocese: SNAP responds
Statement by: Judy Jones, SNAP Volunteer Midwest Regional Leader: 636-433-2511, SNAPjudy@gmail.com
We have just now learned that another priest has been removed from the Erie Diocese while allegations of child sexual abuse are investigated.
We are very encouraged that victims who are still suffering in silence and shame are coming forward, we urge them to contact police no matter how long ago it happened, not the Church. Those who were abused in Pennsylvania should also call the Attorney General's Clergy Abuse Hotline at 888-538-8541.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network, is the world's oldest and largest support group for victims of sexual abuse in institutional settings. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 25,000 supporters. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org )
