The headquarters of the Archdiocese is a nondescript box like building located at 222 N. 17th St. The address giving way for the nickname of the 2’s. The beautiful views from the building make up for the blandness of its structure. This photo taken from the employee cafeteria on the” top of the 2’s.
Archbishop Chaput’s departure from the 2’s is expected after the holidays when his required resignation letter, submitted at age 75, will likely be accepted by Pope Francis and new leadership announced.
Media interest, both local and national, has increased in recent weeks with the expected changes coming to Philly so we have put a guide together for our new followers, as well as the media, for the names that can be expected to be highlighted in our upcoming posts as we examine how the state of child protection, victim assistance, and clergy misconduct at many times seems to remain chaotic and mishandled in a diocese that has been subject to two grand jury reports.
While our work takes us into contact with law enforcement, Child Line, advocacy groups, survivors, local and national media, and the people in the pews. Because our goal is to prevent children from being harmed, we also communicate with the Archdiocese on a regular basis. Sometimes, it’s a one-sided communication. When those emails go unanswered, or the issue unaddressed, we at least have records that the Archdiocese was alerted to the concern or safety issue. They can’t claim that they did not know.
