CA - Vatican comes clean about priest’s removal, SNAP responds
We are glad that the Vatican has finally taken action to remove Msgr. Cristobal Garcia. However, this belated move does not change the fact that their actions in the past have done more to harm children than removing Garcia today does to protect them.
In 2005, after Garcia admitted abusing altar boys, church officials did nothing as the predator priest fled to the Philippines. More recently, they allowed his Filipino diocese to propagate the myth that he was removed “due to health reasons.” These lies and inaction could only have endangered kids.
We hope that there is a serious shakeup due to this mishandling, but we doubt that such a thing will occur. The men who covered for Fr. Garcia in the Philippines should be severely punished. Sadly, we doubt they will even receive a slap on the wrist.
SNAP Conference Postponed to September
As cases of COVID-19 continue to dominate the headlines, affect the way we work and play, and force changes to our daily lives, we have decided to postpone the SNAP Annual Conference from July until September. We are now planning to hold the conference from September 25 - 27 and it will still be held in Denver, CO.
In order to help make this change easier, we will be charging only $99 for registration from now through June 30. Stay tuned for updates and register today on our conference page.SNAP Conference Postponed to September
