The head of the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae on Friday turned over to Peru's Office of the Public Prosecutor the information identified in a recent report on the community regarding the sexual abuse of minors by its founder and by four of its former members.
Alessandro Moroni Llabres, superior general of the Sodalits, went to the public prosecutor's office Feb. 17 "to make available to the authorities all the information in reference to the cases of the sexual abuse of minors identified in the investigation by international experts," the community announced.
After handing over the report, Moroni stated: "we are continuing to seek out the truth. We are asking for your prayers for this work in a special way for the victims and all those who are suffering."
The Sodalitium Christianae Vitae is a society of apostolic life which was founded in 1971 in Peru, and granted pontifical recognition in 1997. CNA's executive director, Alejandro Bermúdez, and its global director of operations, Ryan Thomas, are both members of the community.
