LISTENING SESSION on the Church Abuse Crisis
Father Stephen included the following invitation to a LISTENING SESSION in the Parish Hall in his Pastor's Column in last weekend's bulletin.
I would like to announce that on Sunday evening, November 4, following the 5:30 p.m. Mass, we will hold a listening session for parishioners, to address the ongoing thoughts and feelings related to the Church Abuse Crisis.
The primary purpose is to allow attendants to articulate their pain and to receive in charity the pain of one another. There is no “easy fix” or “neat explanation.” The hope is that joining in a prayerful spirit will help us advance in maintaining our focus on Christ while striving for integrity and accountability. As on every Sunday evening, the opportunity for Adoration in church will be available.
