November 2013 Listening Session

Twin Cities Voice of the Faithful Listening Session, Thursday, November 21, 2013, Pax Christi Catholic Community, 7-8:30pm

Opening Remarks (Shari Steffen):

We are all at different places on our journey through life and through this history of abuse so present to us recently here in the Twin Cities. Where ever you are on that journey, we welcome you and we hope the meeting is helpful to all of us since in many ways we are all affected by clergy abuse. Some of us are direct victims of abuse by a member of the clergy or vowed religious or other church employee, some of us are family members or friends of victims, some of us are worshipers in parishes where abusers may have been assigned and all of us are witnesses to the stories of abuse that have been made public over the past 11 years, and particularly over the past few months in this archdiocese.
