2002 | WHYY-FM Philadelphia, PA “Radio Times” Talk Show, February 27, 2002

In Radio and Web Reports by PhilSaviano

Recorded broadcast from the Philadelphia NPR radio station, WHYY features a discussion on the unfolding Catholic clergy abuse crisis. Guests include SNAP’s Phil Saviano, Catherine Rossi, the director of communications for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and Rev. James Gill, a psychiatrist and Jesuit priest working at the Institute of Living, a residential psychiatric hospital in Hartford, CT. Note that three years after this broadcast, in September 2005, a Grand Jury announced findings that Philadelphia Cardinal Bevilacqua and his predecessor orchestrated a systematic cover-up spanning four decades. They managed to shield from criminal charges 63 priests who had molested hundreds of children.
