Erie Catholic Diocese to Resume Program Assisting Sexual Abuse Survivors
The Diocese of Erie announced Tuesday it will resume its work with the Independent Survivors' Reparation Program (ISRP), a program established to assist survivors of sexual abuse.
The program was suspended in mid-March at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
The suspension affected approximately 40 remaining claimants. Claimants will be notified that the fund will begin processing claims effective August 6.
According to the Diocese of Erie, the ISRP was established to address the emotional, psychological and pastoral needs of survivors of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Erie.
