The 25th anniversary conference for the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests opened here as you would expect for any organization reaching a milestone. Leading members highlighted moments for retrospection and bestowed accolades on all that helped the abuse advocates’ organization arrive at this night.
“You have all chosen to put yourself out there … you take risks,” said David Clohessy, the group’s executive director at the opening session Friday night.
He said what SNAP does – protect the vulnerable … — is “not rocket science … more precious and rare than genius, it takes courage, it takes passion, it takes commitment.”
