On Behalf of | Jun 12, 2019 | Catholic Church

The June 17 deadline for survivors of sexual abuse to file claims against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe is rapidly approaching.  The Archdiocese, which recently filed for bankruptcy protections, is expected to be hit with more than 200 claims from sexual abuse survivors, according to some media reports.

The Archdiocese of Santa Fe has released the names of more than six dozen priests it says have been credibly accused of child sexual abuse.

The bankruptcy court has ordered that all claims by survivors of sexual abuse be filed by June 17 at 5:00 p.m. Anyone sexually abused by a clergy member, lay employee, or volunteer affiliated with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe must file their claim by the court-ordered deadline of June 17.  After that, most survivors of sexual abuse in the Santa Fe Archdiocese will likely be barred from recovering for their abuse and injuries forever.
