KCSARC Statement on Pennsylvania Clergy Abuse Report

 
A Note to Supporters from Mary Ellen Stone, KCSARC Executive Director
 
A grand jury report alleging seven decades of sexual abuse and cover-ups in six Pennsylvania Catholic dioceses was made public this week.
 
As professionals working in the field of sexual abuse treatment and prevention, we are not surprised by the report detailing decades of abuse in the Pennsylvania dioceses, but the sheer scale and intentional cover-up is shocking.

We condemn in the strongest possible terms the Church’s systematic cover-up of child sexual abuse. 

We stand with victims, and commend the fortitude of the Pennsylvania Attorney General and grand jury involved.
