Abuse can victimize children, teenagers and adults. Abuse can target single, married, widowed or divorced adults. Abuse is indifferent to whether you are a male or a female. Clergymen, seminary students and clergy-wives are no exception to the rule.
On the other hand, clergymen, monastics, clergy-wives, or simply mere members of the laity can be the Abusers!
Are you a current or a former victim of abuse, sexually or otherwise, by someone in the Eastern Rite church?
If so, PLEASE SPEAK UP!
WE BELIEVE YOU! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
ABOVE ALL, YOU MUST BELIEVE IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!
