SURVIVOR'S WISDOM:
DON'T GO TO THE CHURCH......Many survivors have gone to church officials to look for help, guidance and/or healing. Many of us went to the church leaders, after building up loads of courage and strength to face them, because we wanted to make sure that our perpetrators didn’t abuse anyone else. We mistakenly thought that the church leaders would want to ensure others’ safety too and that the perpetrators would be removed from ministry......THE DIOCESE OF NEW ULM assigned known child abuser Markey to St. Andrews and then silently moved him and covered-up his crimes,.... why go to those that enabled the rape of children?..... MINNESOTA LAW says to report sex crimes to law enforcement, did the Diocese of New Ulm?...NO !!!.......If you or a loved one has been injured by clergy abuse, I will help you! Please contact me in confidence at the number in the article or skibrs at q.com ......Bob Schwiderski, Minnesota SNAP Director

I am so sick of hearing stories like this. I am Catholic, but also an advocate of justice and victims rights. Even though the church had reports from way back when that this Priest had treatment for sexually related issues, he was still allowed to be in the presence of the vulnerable! This is sick and wrong. Nothing like hiding the issue. I hope the victims obtain justice and sexual predators OF ALL KINDS, get the punishment they deserve.
