In December, Chicago Archdiocese records revealed that a disturbing number of church leaders protected priests accused of sex abuse.

We’re now learning about one woman who stood up to church officials, in an effort to put an end to the behavior.

According to the documents sister peg’s first report of a priest dates back to the 1970’s when she was a principal at St. John Vianney in Northlake.

Peg alerted church officials about Reverend Thomas Job, after several boys told her they had been sexually abused by him.

Although Sister Peg’s says no one listened to her for many years, her efforts are considered courageous and rare, especially for that time.
