The Warren Land
 

A Sad Announcement:

The People of Hope was recently approved as private association of the faithful
in the Archdiocese of Newark. Unfortunately, the Church failed to address or
even consider the concerns and proof of physical, psychological & emotion abuse
on fellow Catholics who were a part of this group before they broke away from
the abusive practices of the Shepherding & Discipleship Movement in this group.

The Archbishop of Newark is being considered as a candidate to replace
retiring Cardinal Egan of New York.  Read the article
on Survivor's Network of those Abused by Priests for more information.

This "new day" for the People of Hope is a constant reminder
of others being abandoned by the Church.

The Bergen Record in 1985 had an article written about the Hope community. The following is a quote from that article: "State and federal authorities are examining tax records to determine whether Hope leader Robert Gallic and others improperly used group funds collected for religious purposes to finance the spacious homes they now own in a Warren Township development known as Mary Street or to help by homes for other members... Robert Gallic said in a telephone interview that community funds were not used for home financing."  There is an inconsistency between this statement and the letter written below.

The following letter is a history of the development of the homes on Mary Street in Warren Township, New Jersey. While it is our policy to try and mask names, it was impossible to do so on this document from the community leadership. Please note that paragraph four contains an admission that money was used from a non-profit evangelistic fund to purchase the land on which the houses were built.

The above signatures are from the three "head coordinators" of the group at that time.
