Priest-abuse victims group plans march

San Gabriel Valley Tribune

LOS ANGELES -- Family members of clergy-molestation victims who committed suicide, along with abuse survivors, will carry a 6-foot casket covered with pictures from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Sunday from the Los Angeles Criminal Courts building to the Los Angeles cathedral.

About 100 people, most members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, a confidential support group, are expected.

A memorial service and candlelight vigil are planned.

The group will meet at 6:30 p.m. outside the courthouse, 210 W. Temple St., and at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Angeles Cathedral, 555 W. Temple St.

Speakers include a woman whose son took his own life, even though the pedophile priest who assaulted him was sent to prison.
