“ Church past and present…we must do better."

For survivors and their families, for the families and friends of deceased victims of sexual abuse by clergy, for faithful Catholics stunned by the discovery of abuse and its cover-up in our Church, for all clergy whose lives continue to honor their ministries, the release of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice study promises facts and numbers that will hurt all over again.

Commissioned by the USCCB National Review Board, the bishops’ self-reported documentation of sexual abuse by clergy across 191 dioceses in the US will aggregate data on the number of priests who have been accused, the number of victims who have made allegations, and the financial cost to the Church of its response.

This report does not promise closure but a better understanding among all Catholics, clergy and laity alike, of where we must go from here. The materials in this VOTF supplement are provided for our collective education and to help each of us determine our role in the weeks and months ahead.
