PA—Survivors extend support to victim
For immediate release: July 1, 2018
Statement by: Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Regional Leader: 636-433-2511, SNAPjudy@gmail.com
We commend the brave victim for coming forward and reporting an accusation of abuse by Father James W. Clark.
No matter how long ago the abuse happened, the courage of survivors telling their story provides hope for healing for victims and protects children today. If you have been abused or have a reasonable suspicion of abuse, please report to law enforcement.
We also urge Bishop Edward C. Malesic to reach out to anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed where Clark was located, including St. Mary (Nativity), St. John the Evangelist, St. Therese, Little Flower of Jesus, St. Joseph Parishes, and Uniontown Hospital.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network, is the world's oldest and largest support group for victims of sexual abuse in institutional settings. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 25,000 supporters. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org )
