Survivors group to speak out about clergy abuse

Rockford Register Star


ROCKFORD — The Rockford chapter of a national survivors group will hold a news conference about “new events” in the clergy sexual-abuse scandal.

Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests plans the media event for 11 a.m. Monday at St. Peter Cathedral, 1243 N. Church St., Rockford, the group announced in a statement released Friday.

Survivors and supporters of alleged abuse will be present. Donald Bondick, coordinator of the Rockford chapter, will make a statement about the Catholic Diocese of Rockford.

Bondick would not say whether the news conference was about new victims or allegations in the 11-county diocese.
