MN--Victims “disappointed” church court delay
For immediate release: Thursday, April 9
Statement by Frank Meuers of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (952-334-5180, email@example.com)
We’re disappointed that Catholic officials are already seeking to delay the bankruptcy process.
St. Paul church officials have known for a long time they were going to seek Chapter 11 protection. They have a legion of lawyers. They consulted with bankruptcy lawyers in early or mid 2013.
So it’s distressing to see that already Catholic officials are trying to slow events down. Many survivors struggle daily with depression, addictions, sleeplessness, agoraphobic, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts. They need justice, help and closure sooner, not later.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We were founded in 1988 and have more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.
