October 30, 2018

In a Tuesday morning news conference, the attorney for Catholic Diocese of Buffalo whistleblower Siobhan O’Connor called on Pope Francis to instruct Bishop Malone to resign.

O’Connor said, “I also want people to understand that this is truly happening, and we have to stand up and fight for the soul of our church.”

O’Connor was joined by her attorney, Mitch Garabedian, and survivor advocates Bob Hoatson and Jim Faluszczak. In addition to O’Connor’s private push for change in the diocese, the three men have publicly put pressure on diocesan leaders for several months.
