The opening session for Assembly 2019 promises to get straight to the heart of the matter during a facilitated conversation on the mainstage about the clergy sex abuse scandal. Prominent voices from our ministry will share comments and insights into the issue and discuss ways Catholic health care and Church leadership can work together to protect human dignity, promote healing and advance the common good.
