OH- Priest accused, victims respond
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
A Catholic priest in Columbus has been placed on leave after allegations of sexual abuse. Since 1969, this priest has worked at 8 locations, including a high school where one of the alleged abuses occurred.
We commend those who reported the crimes. We urge any other individuals who have witnessed or been abused to come forward in order keep this predator priest safely away from children. We hope that the diocese will warn the parishioners of these locations and ask them to report anything they know to the police. Any additional information that would help convict this criminal will help prevent future crimes against children.
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
