The U.S. Catholic Church has been rocked by reports of childhood sexual abuse, dating back decades and involving priests throughout Chicago and the country. While the church made changes to curb the crisis, the accusations continue to pour in, many involving serial abusers.
So, where do the credibly accused, the worst of the worst, end up?
Often, it’s a rustic retreat, at the end of a road, in the middle of America.
Hiding in plain sight.
WGN Films presents “Sanctuary of Sin”, a look at a little-known religious order and the role it played in the Catholic church sex abuse crisis. We reveal how the Servants of the Paraclete started, how it grew and where it is today.
Beginning Monday May 22, WGN News will present “Sanctuary of Sin” during the WGN News at 9. The three-part series will culminate in a half-hour special hosted by WGN’s Larry Potash on Friday, May at 26 p.m.
