We applaud these brave victims who are speaking up, exposing predators, protecting kids and deterring wrongdoing. We believe they will ultimately find that taking legal action and breaking their silence will lead to greater healing.
We are especially grateful that they are pushing for tangible reforms that help protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded. That usually means far more to victims than financial settlements.
We hope the courage of these wounded victims will inspire others who have been hurt by Montana priests, nuns, seminarians and other Catholic employees to step forward, start recovering, and help others.
