They’re from CA, PA, VA, OH, KS, OR, IN and Manitoba, Canada

Each is an admitted, convicted or credibly accused clergy or church employee

Group vows to “expose more who commit sex crimes & misdeeds against kids & adults"

Victims challenge Mennonite officials: “Burden of stopping predators shouldn’t fall on us”

A support group for survivors of sexual abuse is adding five more names to their recent on-line posting of what they call “sexual predators” in Anabaptist Mennonite institutions. The organization promises to keep expanding the list “for the protection of others.”

PA-- Predator priest who worked in Philly is sentenced again

For immediate release: Monday, May 2, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790314 645 5915 home,davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

Last Friday, a serial predator priest - who worked in Philadelphia and abused kids in Oklahoma - was sentenced to 20-40 more years behind bars for more child sex crimes he committed in Michigan. For the safety of kids and the healing of victims, we hope he stays behind bars for as long as possible. And we hope that Philadelphia Catholic officials will spread this news and use church bulletins, pulpit announcements, and church websites to aggressively seek out others who he may have hurt.
