With the release of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report on clergy sexual abuse within the dioceses of the state and the subsequent calls for more
disclosures, the Catholic Church in the United States has to address accusations of “covering up” historic abuse cases. The presenters will speak about various factors that have contributed to the continual unfolding of this issue and will facilitate a lively discussion on what action is being taken in our own diocese as well as possible remedies, both locally and broadly. They will also address the personal impact that such abuse has on survivors.
