Statement from Bishop Paul Swain
Response to Revelations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Clergy
Recent revelations released by the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania concerning child sexual abuse by clergy in many of the dioceses in that state and the lack of appropriate response by some bishops over seven decades have shocked, sickened and saddened us all. The graphic details reveal that the innocence and dignity of young children were violated by priests ordained to minister in the name of Christ through His Church who betrayed like Judas their ordination promises. I fully share the disgust and anger of all affected especially the victims and their families, and all faithful Catholics.
There are still openings where you can sign-up for the opportunity to schedule an hour with Our Lord in our Adoration Chapel. We are also in need of substitutes. The Chapel is open for 24 hours from Sun. evening at 6pm until Sat. afternoon at 4pm. Questions? Call Anne @361-1600; firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a card in the Commons.
