ST. LOUIS Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests will hand out leaflets tomorrow morning outside a parish where a suspected pedophile priest once worked.

The Reverend Joseph Monahan is named in a Philadelphia grand jury report that is critical of the Philadelphia Archdiocese for covering up accusations of sexual abuse by priests.

Monahan was accused in 2002 of sexually abusing an eighth-grade boy in 1969 when he was assistant pastor in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.
