Catholic Diocese of Greensburg’s healing efforts continued Monday evening at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Lower Burrell.

Bishop Edward C. Malesic and other leaders heard from their flock in the third of seven scheduled “listening sessions” designed to help is 78 parishes move forward in wake of a decades-long, widespread sexual abuse scandal involving priests.

“The center of our church is not pedophilia,” Malesic said. “The center of our church is Jesus Christ.”

The two-hour session, moderated by the diocese’s Chief Communications Officer Jennifer Miele, at the church along Leechburg Road drew about 220 people from several churches.
