Survivors of Priest Abuse to Rally at Norwich Cathedral Sunday

The Day
October 31, 2019

Norwich — 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.

The local events will coincide with All Survivors Day events taking place across the country. Survivors of sexual assault, their friends and families are invited to attend the rallies.

SNAP also is 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. Under current state law, anyone who was a victim of sexual abuse before the age of 21 may only file such a lawsuit before he or she turns 51.
