On March 17, from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. in the St. Sebastian Multi-Purpose Room, we’ll have a special conversation with pastor Fr. Larry Chapman on clergy sex abuse, focusing on February’s Vatican Summit.
Fr. Larry joined us in November to give people a chance to voice to their concerns, anger, disillusionment, hope and ask questions regarding the church’s failure to protect children and monitor bishops and clergy. Now that the Vatican has concluded its summit on the abuse crisis, we come back together to share thoughts and ideas to help victims and church member move forward and heal. All are welcome.
- Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki was a co-host of the Catholic Partnership Leadership Roundtable Summit, a February gathering of leading clergy, religious, and laity that developed specific responses to the crisis. Its response, along with other documents, provides important context.
- The National Catholic Reporter has posted a series of articles on the crisis.
