Listening Session and Conversation

Listening Session and Conversation with Our Parishioners Regarding the Sex Abuse Crisis

On September 20th, we had a representative from the Archdiocesan Office of Pastoral Support and Outreach speak with our Pastoral Council regarding the sexual abuse crisis in the Church. It was a very good session, that encouraged our members to express their feelings and have their questions responded to. The Council then suggested that we have a listening session and conversation with all of our parishioners about this crisis and the responsibility that the Archdiocese and our parishes have to face it honestly.

We have set that date for Monday evening, October 22nd at 7:00 PM at the Collaborative Center. We invite all those who are able, to join us. There will be a presentation by Archdiocesan representatives Vivian Soper and Kristen Gotter (Pastoral Support and Outreach).

We ask our parishioners and friends to share their thoughts, feelings, and questions with those present. It can be a very emotional evening. We believe it is our privilege and responsibility to give our people this opportunity to be heard.
