Healing Our Church
A pastoral response to the current sexual abuse crisis
The recent wave of news about clergy sexual abuse and the coverup by some Church leaders has left many of the faithful angry and shaken in their relationship with the Church. Amidst the other difficulties the situation presents, how do dioceses and parishes find a way to minister to these hurting parishioners?
RENEW International has created Healing Our Church, a small-group resource which faces the issue head-on and helps the lay faithful begin the healing process and move forward, with the clergy, as a family of faith. Read more.
Call us at (908) 769-5400 to begin the Healing Our Church process in your parish.
The RASKOB Foundation recognized the importance of our work with a $30,000 challenge grant in support of Healing Our Church. Donors matched the grant dollar for dollar.
Good and gracious God,
we ask for healing for our wounded Church
and a way forward through this time of despair.
