Voice of the Faithful Focus – A brief update highlighting issues and successes as we work together to Keep the Faith, Change the Church.
Blue Ribbons for Awareness!
Can your group or affiliate promote, sponsor, or wear blue ribbons during April 2010 National Child Abuse Awareness Month?
Stop, Look and Listen
Raising awareness and giving voice to the issue of child sexual abuse requires a multitude of “Voices in Action” every day of the year.
Have kids, grandkids? Plant one pinwheel for each child protection report in your city or town last year!!
Spread the word on how prevalent child abuse is in your community.
How about planting a pinwheel garden in your community, church or school play ground??
There are numerous agencies, groups and communities that have special activities for child abuse awareness…
Is there a race or a walk for child sexual abuse awareness, or survivor support in your community? Find out, sign up, join in, or start one yourself.
Could your group or affiliate help? Spread the word—pick up your feet and move the message along:
STOP CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE!!
The moral authority of the papacy in Ireland, and of Catholic bishops here, is likely to collapse if the promised papal pastoral letter to Ireland does not squarely address the issue of the widespread cover up by bishops of the outrage of clerical child sexual abuse.
Despite the strong leadership shown by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin, the prestige and authority of Catholic bishops in Ireland, and of the papacy, continue to decline in the wake of the Murphy report of November 26, 2009.
