Open letter to Archbishop Timothy Dolan

Dear Archbishop Dolan; 

We are clergy sex abuse victims and supporters. We belong to a support group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Our mission is to protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded.


Victims blast Ft. Wayne Catholic officials

We are saddened that the Fort Wayne – South Bend Diocese did not disclose all the information they had regarding Fr. Thomas Lombardi’s crimes when they announced his removal. In an effort to live up to their pledge to be open and honest about clergy sex cases, the Diocese should have revealed when and where the abuse took place.
