The Catholic Church did indeed help Nazis escape right after the war. This was also true of the Red Cross. Indeed, it was true of the Soviets, the CIA, and the British secret services. What makes the acts of the Church particularly despicable is that it presents itself as a moral guardian and spiritual leader. It is true that some members of the Church helped Jews during the war, but they acted in their individual capacities, and many of them have been recognized by Yad Vashem. It is also true that Pope John XXXIII and Pope John-Paul XX did a lot to improve relations with the Jewish people, and that the blood libel of deicide against the Jews has been dropped. It is also true that it took the Church many decades to recognize Israel, and to act responsibly regarding the Jewish state and the Jewish people. Tragically, the Curch has too much on its conscience regarding the Jewish people, and it will take some time to erase two thousand years of persecutions.
