Hundreds of people are demanding San Antonio's Catholic Archdiocese post a list of the names of local priests convicted of sexual abuse.

The local president of a Priest Abuse Survivors Network delivered a petition Monday afternoon signed by 200 people.

The group also wants a meeting arranged between those priests and victims of abuse.

So far they're being told a posting of names, and a meeting, are an impossibility.

"There was one posted in April 28, 2002 and it wasn't an impossibility. I showed her the signatures, I told her that the group would like to meet with her to express themselves as to why they want these lists of names posted," said Barbara Garcia Boehland.

The Archdiocese hasn't returned News 4 WOAI's calls for a response.

The group says they will continue to obtain more signatures for their petition drive until the church agrees to their demands.
