Dear Bishop Johnston,
We are members of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests; victims’ advocates; and supporters of victims of child sexual abuse.
We are writing you today because of the situation at St. Patrick’s parish, where you recently banned a 70-year-old volunteer after his more than 20-year history of inappropriate behavior with children. A letter about the man became public last week in an article in the Kansas City Star.
