Statement to the Faithful about Kevin G. Sloniker

Kevin G. Sloniker had been attending and serving Mass at Immaculate Conception Church in Post Falls, ID, where he was a volunteer camp counselor in summer camps around a decade ago.

He has been charged in state court with very serious crimes concerning children and is now in police custody.

The Society has been cooperating fully with the police investigation of Mr. Sloniker for more than five weeks.

To date, the Society of St. Pius X has not been advised of any report of criminal activity at the church or on the summer camps. The investigation is ongoing.

The Society of St. Pius X, its priests, and its employees take the protection of minors most seriously. The summer camps are quite structured and supervised, and, since 2012, the Society of St. Pius X has required background checks for all camp counselors.

The Society of St. Pius X assures all victims of abuse and their families of its compassion and prayers.

Any further questions about this statement should be addressed to Fr. Scott Gardner, Legal Secretary: (816) 733-2522.
