Virginia Catholic Cleric Suspended; SNAP Responds

A Virginia Catholic cleric has been suspended because of allegations of sexual misconduct in New Jersey.

We’re sad that it takes a letter from an advocate to prompt the church hierarchy to act. When will Catholic officials act on abuse reports without having to be prodded by outsiders?

We hope anyone who saw, suspected or suffered misdeeds by this cleric or any cleric will get help, call police, protect others and start healing.
