June 21, 2019

Sexual abuse victims are calling for action to be taken against former Erie Bishop Donald Trautman.

James Faluszczak, a former priest and victim of child sexual abuse, is calling for the Diocese of Erie to hold the bishops accountable for their actions and stand up for victims’ rights. “It’s a crime, it is a scandal that these men are in ministry and my mind as I say the wolves in shepherds clothing,” said Faluszczak.

“Bishop Persico has been aware of multiple sets of allegations of cover up by Bishop Trautman for at least a year,” said Faluszczak. “Both from my own allegations from the substance of the grand jury report.”
