In response to the summer 2018 revelations about clerical sexual abuse and the listening session held at St. John Neumann Catholic Community on Sept. 27, 2018, a parish ACTION group was formed. The name was taken from the following goals:
- ONgoing reform
Our mission encompasses:
- Supporting the survivors of clerical abuse
- Educating ourselves and our parish to the issues involved in this crisis
- Advocating for meaningful laity involvement at all levels of the church hierarchy to ensure accountability and transparency
ACTION meets the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. We meet virtually and in-person. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to participate. All are welcome!
