Bishop Finn

National Survivor Advocates Coalition (NSAC) Statement on the Acceptance of Bishop Robert Finn’s Resignation by Pope Francis

For Immediate Release – April 21. 2015

It’s about time.

The resignation of Bishop Finn as head of the Diocese of Kansas City- St. Joseph is not a  moment for applause in the continuing crisis of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church.

It is a moment to ask why it took so long.

It is a moment to ask when the others who protected and continue to protect abusers will be removed.

It is a moment to ask why there are continuing defenders of bishops and religious superiors for predator priests and religious men and women, and diocesan staffs.

May today’s announcement, terse as it was from the Vatican, give a measure of peace to the survivors.

— Kristine Ward, Chair, National Survivor Advocates Coalition (NSAC)

    I bet Finn will become chaplain of these nuns in his former diocese. They cab support him. Surely not me.
