FL--Florida Whistleblower is Harrassed by Church Officials

For immediate release: Monday, Jan 25, 2016

Statement by: Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Associate Director, 636-433-2511,SNAPJudy@gmail.com

It's heartbreaking and infuriating that Catholic officials are retaliating against a whistleblower priest who acted exactly as he should by calling police on an admitted predator.

Our hearts go out to Father John Gallagher. Shame on Bishop Gerald Barbarito.
