James Faluszczak, a former priest who says he was molested as a teen, joins protesters outside Welland church

James Faluszczak was wearing a dark hoodie with the words ‘defend the defenseless’ on it.

“James is a superhero without a cape,” said William O’Sullivan, a man whose once-lonely weekly vigils outside Welland’s St. Kevin Catholic church where he was sexually assaulted as a boy over a period of several years has grown to become known as the ‘Sully Movement.’
