San Jose Catholic Church Holds Final Meeting For Sexual Abuse Victims

By | September 16, 2019


CATHOLIC CHURCH’S LATEST QUEST FOR TRANSPARENCY… THE SAN JOSE CHURCH HAS BEEN THE CENTER OF A SEX SCANDAL…AND A DECADES-LONG COVER-UP. KPIX 5’S DEVIN FEHELY HAS THE STORY. [REPORTER LIVE] CAMERAS WEREN’T ALLOWED INSIDE THE MEETING TODAY… THAT WAS OUT OF RESPECT FOR VICTIMS WHO SHARED PAINFUL EXPERIENCES… THAT THEY SAY HAUNT THEM STILL… [PKG] WITH THE DIOCESE OF SAN JOSE JUST DAYS AWAY FROM RELEASING A LIST OF PRIESTS AND OTHER CHURCH PERSONNEL WHO’VE BEEN CREDIBLY ACCUSED OF ABUSE… DOZENS TURNED OUT TO LISTEN… AND TO SHARE THEIR STORIES OF BEING VICTIMIZED… “PARISHIONER JOANN CARAVALHO: For so many years, the Catholic Church has swept some of this under the carpet. And I think it’s horrific.” [NATS] [FOLLOWED BY FULLSCREEN] BY MID-OCTOBER… BISHOP PATRICK McGRATH (McGraw) HAS PROMISED TO RELEASE THE NAMES OF PRIESTS OR CHURCH PERSONNEL WHO’VE EITHER BEEN CRIMINALLY CONVICTED OF ABUSE… HAVE ADMITTED THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THEM ARE TRUE… OR HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN CASE WHERE THERE IS SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THE ACCUSATION – EVEN IF IT WAS NEVER PROSECUTED. “FR. JON PEDIGO/CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY: There have been instances where there have people who have been deeply hurt and injured and violated by individuals who are in positions of authority in the church.” THE DIOCESE HAS BEEN REVIEWING ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE DATING BACK TO ITS FORMATION IN 19-81… WHEN IT SPLIT FROM THE ARCHDIOCESE OF SAN FRANCISCO. IT HAS ALSO HIRED AN OUTSIDE FIRM TO CONDUCT AN INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF THOSE FILES… BUT PARISHIONERS REMAIN SKEPTICAL. “PARISHIONER JOANN CARAVALHO: I think regardless if they’re a priest or not, they should be treated they should be treated like anybody else who would be guilty of a crime like that.” BISHOP McGRATH (McGRAW) SAYS HE KNOWS THIS PROCESS MAY REOPEN OLD WOUNDS… BUT HE HOPES TOO… IT WILL HELP TO HEAL… THOSE STILL HURTING FROM THE ABUSE. “BISHOP BITE (HE WON’T TALK UNTIL AFTER) IT’S NO SECRET THAT CALIFORNIA HAS SOME BAD ROADS AND HIGHWAYS. SOMETHING’S GOTTA CHANGE. SOMETHING’S GOTTA CHANGE. OAKLAND CITY LEADERS SAY

    You wonder how truthful they will be…the church really doesn't have any credibility. .if it did, it would eliminate the statue of limitations in all states instead of spending millions on lobbiests to keep the statue of limitations in place..
