St. John Neumann ACTION

In response to the Summer of 2018 revelations about clerical sexual abuse and the Listening Session held at St. John Neumann Catholic Community on September 27, 2018, a parish ACTION group was  formed. Our name was taken from the following goals:

Advocacy         Change         Transparency         Inclusion         ONgoing reform

Our mission encompasses:

  1. Supporting the survivors of clerical abuse
  2. Educating ourselves and our parish to the issues involved in this crisis
  3. Advocating for meaningful laity involvement at all levels of the church hierarchy to ensure accountability and transparency
