Lawsuit Settled, Former SNAP Director Returns to the Fight Against Abuse

posted on September 27, 2018

For Religion News Service, Eric Berger reports that the longtime leader of Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) has returned to the organization as a spokesman after leaving in 2016. David Clohessy resigned amid health problems and a a now settled lawsuit from a former employee. After years of internal turmoil, SNAP is returning to the fight against abuse under the leadership of Executive Director Zach Hiner and President Tim Lennon. Lennon said, “For a month or two, there was a great amount of fear, doubt, questioning that would be similar to any organization. We also work in a community where trust is diminished because of the abuse by priests and nuns and deacons and brothers, so trust is an issue that sometimes come to play when change is made.”
