MO--Church & non-profit must act now on child sex charges

For immediate release: Thursday, July 13

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003 cell, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)

A Kansas City area pastor who is also a homeless shelter staffer faces child sex charges. It’s now the duty of both institutions – church and shelter – to aggressively seek out others with information or suspicions about his crimes, so that law enforcement can successfully prosecute the pastor.
