Survivors of priest abuse to rally at Norwich Cathedral Sunday

The Day

Oct. 31. 2019

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests will hold its second annual All Survivors Day on Sunday at 1 p.m. at three cathedrals in Connecticut.

The locations are St. Patrick’s, 213 Broadway in Norwich, St. Augustine’s at 399 Washington Ave. in Bridgeport, and St. Joseph’s at 140 Farmington Ave. in Hartford.

All Survivors Day events will take place across the country. Survivors of sexual assault, their friends and families are invited to attend the rallies.

SNAP is also working with the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Abuse in calling for the General Assembly to eliminate the statute of limitations for victims of sexual abuse to file civil suits and establish a two-year “window” for all victims, regardless of their age, to file lawsuits. State law currently prohibits those older than 51 from filing lawsuits.
