Welcome to Our Parish

New Jersey Independent Victims Compensation Program opens June 15

As had been announced in February of this year, the Diocese of Trenton – along with the other Roman Catholic dioceses in New Jersey – has established an Independent Victim Compensation Program (IVCP) to compensate those who, as minors, were sexually abused by a priest or deacon of the Diocese. The IVCP will be open to claims beginning June 15.

The IVCP is independently administered by experienced victim compensation experts Kenneth R. Feinberg and Camille S. Biros. Mr. Feinberg was the plan administrator for the federal 9/11 victim compensation program, as well as the Boston Marathon bombing compensation program.

The IVCP will handle the submission, evaluation and resolution of individual claims, and will operate independently of the Diocese or any Church-affiliated institution.  The administrators of the IVCP will have complete autonomy to determine the eligibility of a claim with the guidelines of the established Protocol. The amount of compensation for those who make a claim will be determined by the IVCP administrators.  All victims – no matter when the abuse occurred – are eligible to participate, and all matters will be handled confidentially. 

Victims of clergy sexual abuse of a minor can begin the process of utilizing the program by going to www.njdiocesesivcp.com and reviewing the Protocol for submitting a claim.

Anyone who was sexually victimized as a minor by a priest or deacon of the Diocese is strongly encouraged to participate in the IVCP.  The Diocese also asks that anyone who knows of someone who was abused to pass along this information to the victim so that he or she is aware of the IVCP.

For the second time this year, our parish has been targeted by scammers trying to have money sent to them by calling, texting or emailing our parishioners.  Please be aware that no priest,deacon or religious person would ever use these communication methods to solicit money from you.  Be aware of this and if you do get a message like that contact the parish office via email to admin@stclementmatawan.org so we can track the number of such contacts.  Thank you and be on guard.
