Pittsburgh Priest Charged with Child Sex Abuse, SNAP Responds
We hope anyone who may have suffered, seen or suspected crimes by Fr. Lang, or any others associated with the Diocese of Pittsburgh, will call the police immediately. Victims, witnesses and whistle blowers can also reach out to SNAP, or groups like ours, for help and support as they report.
We also urge Bishop David Zubik to contact his flock and diocesan employees and remind them, and direct them, that they should be reporting clergy sex crimes to the police. That is, after all, is the right thing to do to make sure that those who abuse children are kept away from the innocent.

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
