We are deeply concerned over photographs showing an “initiation” ritual posted on the St. Dominika Savio Silesian School’s website. No matter what you call it, the pictures are clearly showing inappropriate behaviour with minors.
We applaud Polish officials for getting in an uproar over the pictures and launching an investigation.
Father Marcin Kozyra, who is head of the school and shown in the photos, insisted that there is nothing wrong with the pictures. According to him it is a long running tradition at the school and no one has ever complained before.
Just because no one has ever complained, does not mean it is not abuse. We demand the Fr. Kozyra be fired from his position and a full investigation started.
We hope that anyone who was hurt by Fr. Kozyra or by anybody else, will find the courage to come forward and report to the police.
