A long-time Jefferson City diocese Catholic priest is being honored for what is being described as his "courageous and compassionate work" on behalf of clergy sex abuse victims.

The St. Louis chapter of Voice of the Faithful (VOTF.org) gave an award Tuesday to Fr. Joseph Starmann.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) nominated Starmann for the honor.
