Dedicated Advocate Carolyn Disco of Merrimack has passed away.

Carolyn Disco of Merrimack has passed away.
She was one of the most knowledgeable and outspoken Catholic lay people in the US regarding the Catholic abuse and cover up crisis. She started and led for years the NH chapter of Voice of the Faithful.
Carolyn was a hero to hundreds of clergy sex abuse victims. Unlike most Catholics, she neither ran from this crisis nor bought the calculated apologies and vague promises of the church hierarchy. Instead, she rallied to the side of the wounded and pushed hard to expose the truth, helping law enforcement and journalists investigate this horror.
Her compassion was boundless and her commitment to change was tireless. Many a suffering survivor turned to her for comfort and found it in this generous, kind woman. SNAP gave her our first-ever "Lay Person of the Year" award, which she earned through her dedicated support and advocacy. She will be sorely missed.

    She defended the dirtbag Billy Doe. That sounds really believable.
