Parish Council Hosts Listening Sessions on Clergy Sexual Abuse

Two Monday evening sessions:
September 10
September 17
7 - 9pm
North Conference Room
Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle
1725 Rhode Island Ave NW 
Washington, D.C. 20036


St. Matthew’s Parish Pastoral Council invites you to share your concerns and feelings on the recent clergy sexual abuse scandals, and your thoughts on how our Church community can protect and assist abuse survivors, protect against future victimization, and increase transparency and accountability moving forward. Join Council members and Msgr. Jameson for either of two listening sessions, on Monday, September 10 and Monday, September 17, from 7 to 9pm in the North Conference Room.


A summary of the sessions will be sent to Cardinal Wuerl.


Note: Out of respect for attendees who may themselves be victims of abuse, and to encourage an honest and open session, audio and visual recording will not be allowed. Thank you for your understanding.
