Abuse Crisis


This will be printed in the September 16 Bulletin 

From Father Michael
At our Parish Council last Monday, we had an open discussion about the recent events in the Catholic Church. All expressed sadness that so many lives have been affected and that so many people have been hurt. The question was asked – what can we do as a parish?  I ask your patience for just a little while as I recuperate from surgery. In October, we plan to offer opportunities for parishioners to come together in discussion and in prayer. In the meantime, these resources were mentioned as helpful to Council members:
-         The recent CARA study can be found on “1964,” a research blog published by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. The post appeared, with updates, beginning on August 28. The study was also published in America Magazine.
-         Bishop Robert Barron can be found on YouTube. Watch “Bishop Barron Q & A about the Sexual Abuse Crisis” and “Why Remain Catholic with So Much Scandal?”
-         A recommended book is “Hurting in the Church: A Way Forward for Wounded Catholics” by Father Thomas Berg (well known to parishioners as he served at St. Columba).
