SNAP Press Statement

St. Louis priest arrested; SNAP responds

Statement by Barbara Dorris, SNAP Outreach director 314-862-7688

We commend law enforcement for taking child sex crimes seriously and for pursuing predators aggressively. There have been in recent years at least two sexually troubled priests at this parish. A charge is not a conviction so it is crucial that anyone who saw suspected or suffered this priests misdeeds call the FBI immediately.

Archbishop Carlson should do got every parish where he worked and beg victims and witnesses to come forward.

Barbara Dorris will be available for interviews
