In a recent announcement, Archbishop Chaput encourages the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to gather on Saturday, March 22, 2014 during the regular 5:15 service at the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul for a Healing Mass for Victims of Clergy Sex Abuse. Archbishop Chaput will be the main celebrant and homilist. Recommended wording for bulletins went out to parishes as well as personal invitations to victims of clergy sex abuse. One sentence read, “as we continue to pray for the survivors of clergy sexual abuse, the healing of the church, and for all those who have been affected by clergy sexual abuse.”
Kathy and I would like to hear everyone’s thoughts on this. What specific actions would you like the Archdiocese to undertake on behalf of victims?
