MO- More predator priest settlements in KC

For immediate release: Friday, Feb. 21

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

Two more cases have settled against Kansas City's Catholic diocese because several top church officials ignored and concealed heinous crimes by a priest, Fr. Shawn Ratigan.

We are glad that Ratigan individually has been assessed a penalty, though we doubt he'll ever have to pay it. And we are grateful every time a victim of a predator priest finds the courage to step forward, the wisdom to take legal action, the persistence to endure bishops' delay, and wins any measure of justice.

Chile--Predator removed by the Vatican continues to minister

 For immediate release: Thursday, February 20, 2014

 Statement by Juan Carlos Cruz or SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (1+ 312 420 4301· jccruz1@aol.com)

 A serial predator priest who has been ordered to live "a life of prayer and penance" is still saying mass in public, clearly violating restrictions put on him by his Catholic supervisors.

We are saddened but not shocked. Only under public pressure do bishops finally take some action against child molesting clerics. And when public attention subsides, it's "back to business as usual."
