IF YOU HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED, COME FORWARD AND GET HELP
Who are we? We are clergy sex abuse victims trying to recover from our trauma and protect kids and vulnerable people in the church. And we are concerned Catholics who want to help victims and also safeguard those at risk.
Why are we here? One or more known or suspected abusive priests worked or lived at this parish. (See below for a partial list of alleged abusers including one or more who were assigned to your parish.) We hope that if there are victims here suffering in shame and silence, they'll learn of our support group.
What do we want? We want to help prevent abuse and help victims heal by informing parishioners of accused priests to whom they may have been exposed.
What should you do? If you or someone you know is a victim of clergy abuse, please know that you are not alone and and that help is available. Contact LAPD @ 213-847-5358, Orange County Sheriffs Dept @ 714-770-6011 and SNAP (A confidential self-help support group of men and women who have been victimized by clergy) @ (626) 835-9066 or www.SNAPnetwork.org.
What can you do to protect kids? 1) Urge your pastor to post these leaflets in your parish 2) Call Cardinal Mahony @ 213-637-7000 and Bishop Brown @ 714-282-3000 and demand that they turn over ALL personnel files of alleged molester to prosecutors 3) Talk with you children about "Safe Touch" TODAY 4) Report any known or suspected abuse (however uncertain you may be) to criminal authorities.
