As holy week begins local religious activists gather to demand answers from the Cincinnati Archdiocese.

Members of the group "Voice of the Faithful" gathered outside Saint Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown Tuesday.

The group said they are praying to show support for priests of integrity and praying for victims of sexual abuse.

The organization is also demanding that the church disclose the current locations of abusive priests.

They said there shouldn't be any special treatment of sexual abusers and that includes priests.

"So we believe that they are citizens of this country and should be held accountable the same way you or I would be held accountable if we committed a crime of sexual abuse," said Nan Fischer, Cincinnati Voice of the Faithful.

The archdiocese has said it will not reveal the locations of accused priests.
