Sex Abuse Audit Names Friars Finds More Victims At St. Lawrence

20-Jun-2013

A Catholic order of priests has released the results of an independent audit confirming sexual abuse of children. The Capuchin Franciscan Province of St. Joseph ordered the audit last June. The audit came in the wake of the removal of the president of St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary. The audit goes back 80 years and names 23 of 46 current, past or deceased friars who allegedly sexually assaulted children. There were allegedly 28 victims at St. Lawrence Seminary abused over the years. Peter Isley is the Midwest Director of SNAP, the Survivor Network of Those Abused by Priests. He was abused at St. Lawrence Seminary as a child. While commending the order for their openness he says more needs to be done to help out the victims.  To see more click here.

I don't even understand how people can remain Catholics. Catholics and Lutherans believe that they are the only true and right teachers of the bible. New flash...I'm not going to hell because I go to community church AND I've never heard of leaders being pedophiles in my church either.

It's nice to see that the seminary was able to hide this for 80 years.
