  1. This is a terrible thing to have happen to anyone. The worst part is that you trust your Priest or Sister to be an extension or channel to God, and to have that trust broken or damaged is devastating. This will affect a person for their entire life. I would also like to know the people on the list that were listed as accused, will this be updated if they are cleared or convicted//sued ?
