OUR MISSION STATEMENT
TO PROVIDE A PRAYERFUL VOICE, ATTENTIVE TO THE SPIRIT, THROUGH
WHICH THE FAITHFUL CAN ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN THE GOVERNANCE AND GUIDANCE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
It is time to contact your representatives and ask them to cooperate with the effort to bring justice to the survivors of sexual child abuse in PA. The bills that have been brought to the legislature in Harrisburg are written to protect children from all who would harm them in this way.
HB 661 and SB 582 concern the limits on the the age of the complainant and the years that have passed since the violation. HB 655 concerns the Statute of Limitations and HB 951 opens the window for all to have their time in Court regardless of when the harm happened.
You can find your Representative on www.legis.state.pa.us and find information about these bills on www.house.state.pa.us. Look at the top right for a place to search for these bills.
We invite all to an evening with Fr. Paul Morrissey, OSA at Chestnut Hill College on May 12 . Fr. Morrissey will discuss his book, Black Wall of Silence: A Novel. Come to have a social evening with VOTF friends!
I hope to see you then. Marita Green, Chair, 4/29/15
