For immediate release: Tuesday, May 6, 2014

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

Every step towards more transparency about clergy sex crimes and cover ups is good. But this one – the number of priests defrocked – is largely meaningless.

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

Rome- Papal abuse committee meets for first time

For immediate release: Saturday May 3, 2014

Statement by: Barbara Dorris (314-503-0003 cell, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)
