The Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg announced that its Survivor Compensation Program enrollment period ended on Monday, May 13, 2019.
“The Survivor Compensation Program is a major component in our ongoing efforts to support survivors of clergy child sexual abuse,” said Bishop Ronald Gainer. “We have just completed an important phase of this Program. Our fund administrators, Commonwealth Mediation & Conciliation, Inc. (CMCI), have informed us that we have had many survivors apply to participate in the Program. Once the settlement period has concluded, the Diocese will release a final report on how many survivors we were able to support. Our Diocese will continue to offer counseling to survivors of clergy child sexual abuse, regardless of whether that survivors has received a settlement or is participating in the Survivor Compensation Program.
