Please join us for a distinguished panel of speakers who will reflect on the ongoing Catholic clergy sexual abuse crises from their particular scholarly and professional vantage points–psychology, law, theology, religious journalism, and ethics. This conversation is especially timely in light of the recently-released Pennsylvania Grand
Jury Report and a wider spate of revelations in the U.S. and around the world about clergy abuse and its concealment. By asking the questions ‘what, why, and what now?’ this event seeks to contribute to well-informed and effective responses by and from Catholics, citizens, and all who are impacted by this reality.
