A group called Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests held a press conference outside of the Honolulu Catholic Diocese Tuesday (Jan. 24).
Judy Jones, SNAP’s midwest associate director, delivered a letter to the diocese asking Bishop Larry Silva to “disclose all allegations against Fr. Marc Alexander and why he left his priesthood.”
Alexander resigned earlier this month as homeless coordinator for the Abercrombie administration. Jones said she wanted Silva to disclose whether he had informed the governor about allegations of sexual abuses made against Alexander while he was still with the church.
A spokesman for the church said, “The diocese is not going to comment regarding this demonstration.”
