SNAP responds to arrest of priest in Kansas
Cases like these serve as painful reminder that sexual abuse is not only perpetrated against children, but can affect vulnerable adults as well. We hope that the arrest of Fr. Scheer will help encourage anyone else who may have seen suspected or suffered any misdeeds by Scheer - or other clergy - to step forward, get help, expose wrongdoing and protct others.
Our gratitude goes out to the Salina police for their prompt actions in this case.
According to the Diocese of Salina’s website, Fr. Scheer has been placed on administrative leave. We urge Bishop-elect Edward Weisenburger to personally visit the parishes that Fr. Scheer may have worked or volunteered at and beg others with knowledge or suspicions of his misconduct to speak up.
