The Paulist Fathers are committed to protecting children and aiding in the healing process for the victims and survivors of sexual abuse.
We are deeply sorry for the pain suffered due to the actions of some members of the clergy.
Any person who has any concerns or information about a Paulist Father in this regard is asked to contact Paulist Fr. John Behnke, our vice president and safety officer, at (212) 757-8072 or JohnBehnke@Paulist.org.
Those with concerns also should contact law enforcement agencies, as well as safe environment officers or victims assistance coordinators in their local diocese or archdiocese.
We pray for all victims and survivors of sexual abuse by clergy, especially minors, that they may receive healing, justice, and peace.
