169. St. Joseph Indian School

Many years ago molestation was alleged to have happened at this boarding school. Unfortunately a law was passed putting a limit to the time which can pass since the crime so victims who were abused before the time limit can no longer get justice.

Still there is a need to connect and support each other among the victims. A website has been set up where students who were abused can find support:
Support victims of clergy sex abuse

It is a problem with these time limits because often the victims are in no position to reach out for help until time has passed due to shame about what they were forced to do. It is safe to state that it was not fun to be a teenager at the St. Joseph Indian School.
