Nearly two years ago, Fr. Timothy Zak, SDB, assured a childhood sexual abuse victim that his claim of having been sexually abused by Fr. Joseph Maffei, SDB, at a Salesian school and facility in Cedar Lake, Indiana, was going to be settled within days. The victim is still waiting for Fr. Zak to keep his promise. Now, Fr. Timothy Zak has been appointed PROVINCIAL (GENERAL SUPERIOR) of the Salesians of Don Bosco Eastern United States and Canadian Province, based in New Rochelle, New York. He will be installed as Provincial at a Mass and picnic on Saturday, July 29, 2017, beginning at Noon, BUT, the childhood victim of sexual abuse by Fr. Joseph Maffei, SDB, continues to be re-victimized each and every day that Fr. Timothy Zak breaks his promise to the settle the case. Demonstrators will call upon those attending the Mass and picnic to urge Fr. Zak to keep his promise, do the right and moral thing, and settle the childhood sexual abuse case against Fr. Joseph Maffei, a serial pedophile of children.
