Default Child Rape International's Chicago office having legal trouble

This Chicago-based Catholic order is keeping secrets about child-molesting clergy around the United States - Chicago Sun-Times

Key findings
  • The Order of Friar Servants of Mary, commonly known as the Servites, has its U.S. headquarters in Chicago, but it maintains no public list of credibly accused members despite calls for transparency.
  • One church watchdog group counts 11 Servites accused of child sex abuse over the years, and the order has been accused of covering up for some offenders.
  • Ther are at least nine pending lawsuits against the Servites stemming from alleged abuse by a former Chicago priest who allegedly molested numerous children in California years ago.
  • A California law that temporarily lifted the statute of limitations on child sex abuse claims has flooded the courts there, and the impact is being felt in Chicago.
  • Public lists of credibly accused clergy maintained by the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Diocese of Rockford omit as many as four Servites.
