After a year of reporting by News 5 Investigative Reporter Jonathan Walsh on the abuse of children by nuns at the Parmadale Children's Village, tonight's "Breaking Their Silence" special will speak to the lasting impact of the victims after decades of anguish.
The special is dedicated to telling the stories of the courageous abuse survivors from the Parmadale Children's Village, women who are now in their late 50s or 60s, who for the first time are being compensated for their suffering.
The special airs at 5:30 p.m. on News 5.
The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland encourages anyone who suspects that any cleric has committed child abuse to report their suspicions to law enforcement and to the diocesan confidential response line by phone at 216-334-2999 or by email at email@example.com.
