The long journey for justice is over for approximately 450 victims who were sexually abused as children by Jesuit Missionaries in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon, in the 1940s through the 1990s.
The landmark settlement was announced March 25. It is the largest settlement between a religious order and sexual abuse victims in the history of the United States. The Society of Jesus, Oregon Province (the Northwest chapter of the Society of Jesus, a religious order based on Rome, Italy), and its insurer will pay $166.1 million, and also requires the Jesuits to provide a written apology to the victims, and produce documents regarding their knowledge of the abuse that took place on their watch.
