NJ--Victims urge archbishop to act on abuse in waning days

For immediate release: Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Statement by Mark Crawford, NJ State Director, SNAP    732-632-7687

The head of New Jersey’s largest Catholic jurisdiction, Newark Archbishop John Myers, is 75, the age at which prelates submit their resignations to Rome. We hope Pope Francis replaces him quickly.

In the days ahead, Myers should take five steps to better protect the vulnerable, heal the wounded and expose the truth.
