Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
A former priest and registered sex offender has resurfaced at a non-profit in Wilkes-Barre. Robert Timchak works for In The Gap, a group that helps turns vacant lots into residential buildings.
This is why we urge bishops to post the names of proven, admitted, and credibly accused child molesting clerics on their website so that neighbors, friends and prospective employers can be warned about potentially dangerous employees.
We urge anyone with more information about this or any other case to please come forward so that predators are not allowed to be employed within communities near children.
