Archdiocese of Philadelphia press conference over accused priests, SNAP responds
We are shocked that fourteen months after a grand jury raised concerns over 37 accused priests only 8 of these cases are resolved.
Catholics, citizens, children and the accused priests deserve better.
This weekend Chaput should start visiting churches where the three priests with “unsubstantiated” allegations worked. He should beg victims, whistle-blowers and witnesses to come forward, share information, and get help.
Parishioners and the public should continue to be highly skeptical of the secretive internal church processes and redouble their efforts to get victims and witness to contact police and prosecutors.
