Erie Diocese Releases Details About Compensation Fund for Victims

0

The Diocese of Erie has released new details about the independently administered compensation fund for victims of abuse.

Bishop Lawrence Persico says an independent administrator has been named, a time frame has been set, and a plan for how the funds will be secured is now in place.

Persico says the purpose is to offer survivors whose abusers are beyond the statute of limitations a non-contentious way to get monetary compensation.

He adds that, “Although money will never fully heal the deep wounds felt by survivors, this fund is a crucial step in the diocese’s ongoing reconciliation and reform efforts.”

Many survivors have repeatedly said they don’t want money; they want a day in court.
