Group Goes after Orlando Bishop

April 25, 2008

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, is going after Orlando Bishop Thomas Wenski. It said Wenski learned about a new lawsuit against Father Jose Mena in February, and did not announce the allegations.

Mena is accused of sodomizing a boy repeatedly in the mid-1970s near Winter Garden.

SNAP said that bishops promised to be open and transparent about sex abuse cases six years ago and that Wenski should have disclosed the information.

The diocese was not able to reached for comment.
