Tonight, on his 56th birthday, a brave man has come to his alma mater, Roselle Catholic High School, to warn and educate. John Staab was the same age as your child when he was recruited to attend Roselle Catholic High School in the 1960’s. He graduated from a Catholic elementary school in Elizabeth and thought Roselle Catholic High School would be a good fit for him. Forty years later, he is back at his high school to tell the true story of horrendous sexual abuse by a Marist Brother.
If NBC’s TODAY Show can ask the question, “Where in the world is Matt Lauer,” why can’t the National Survivor Advocates Coalition ask a similar question? Where in the world is Bob Hoatson? Right now, he is in New Jersey.

“THE POPE EXPRESSES SHOCK AND OUTRAGE”
When the leader of over a billion Catholics expresses shock and outrage, as Pope Benedict XVI did today, after reading the “Murphy Report” about sexual abuse of children in the Dublin Archdiocese and its cover-up by numerous bishops, it is expected that he will follow-up with definitive and concerted action.
