Catholic Forum to Look at Sex-Abuse Crisis

Star-Telegram [Fort Worth TX]
March 21, 2004

A recent report on the scope and cost of the sexual-abuse crisis in the Roman Catholic Church will be discussed Tuesday at a forum in Fort Worth.

A panel including priests, an abuse survivor, a social worker and others will discuss the national report, which found that 4 percent of U.S. priests have been accused of sexual abuse since 1950. The total number of victims is 10,000.

The forum will begin at 7 p.m. in the Catholic Renewal Center, 4503 Bridge St. For information, call (817) 589-7607.
