We applaud the principal of St. Rose of Lima school for immediately informing the CPS and HPD. It is important for adults in positions of trust to listen to children when they report abuse, to show them adults will believe them and take action to protect them.
We hope Cardinal DiNardo actively searches for others who may have been hurt and will personally visit every parish where Lawrence Patrick worked, begging anyone - parishioners, employees and former employees - who saw, suffered or suspected Patrick’s misdeeds to call the police.
We urge parents to talk with their children about Patrick and abuse, whether they have taken music lessons or not.
