With Bishop Walkowiak’s support, our diocese has partnered with RENEW International to implement Healing Our Church. Facilitated by members of the laity, this process offers the opportunity for Catholics who’ve been discouraged and angered by the clergy sex abuse scandal, and the mishandling of these cases by Church leaders, to directly address these issues and set a course toward healing.
“My intention and well-founded hope is that this program will help our Catholic men and women deal with the complex emotions this scandal has caused and start them on the path to healing and renewed discipleship,” said Bishop Walkowiak.
Healing Our Church initiates the healing process by encouraging participants to share their feelings about the scandal, embrace their roles as members of Christ’s Body, and discern and commit to meaningful actions.
