Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, recently turned over the administration of all Catholic parishes in the City of Port Chester, New York, to the Salesians of Don Bosco religious order despite the Salesians’ documented horrific history of sexual abuse of children worldwide, and the New York Salesians’ refusal to reasonably settle a childhood sexual abuse case against a serial pedophile priest, Fr. Joseph Maffei, SDB
The Salesians of Don Bosco, based in Rome, Italy, but with regional headquarters in New Rochelle, New York, were a central focus of concern by Australian government officials who concluded recently that 21.9% of Salesian Priests and Brothers sexually abused children in Australia between the years 1960 and 2010. The Salesians in the United States have sexually abused scores of children as well.
The USA Province of the Salesians of Don Bosco, led by Fr. Timothy Zak, who was a pastor in Port Chester, New York, has failed to reasonably settle a case against Fr. Joseph Maffei, SDB, a serial pedophile priest, who sexually abused a child of approximately 10 years of age in a Salesian school in Indiana many years ago
Despite the Salesians’ extensive and sordid history of sexual abuse of children, Cardinal Dolan summarily handed over to the Salesians of Don Bosco the administration of all Catholic parishes in the City of Port Chester, New York, which is populated by scores of immigrant families with young children
A press conference demanding that the Salesians of Don Bosco, who recently were given the administration of ALL Catholic parishes in the City of Port Chester, New York, reasonably settle all claims of childhood sexual abuse against Salesian priests and brothers, including a case that they have refused to settle with “John Doe” who was abused as a child by Fr. Joseph Maffei, SDB, at a Salesian school in Indiana. The Salesians must settle all cases of childhood sexual abuse against their members so that the victims may heal and gain a degree of closure.
