Publishing the names is important to help victims move on and let them know that they are not alone. This will also alert parents who these individuals are that may potentially cause harm to their children.
Call to Action of the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas has been requesting for 10 years that the Diocese of Brownsville release the names of these men.
In 2004 the diocese released a report indicating that it has reason to believe that seven area priests sexually abused children between 1965 and 2004. These individuals may still be in our community and people may still be vulnerable.
This request is made not to humiliate the priests, but to protect children.
