Voice of the Faithful will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, at Blessed Sacrament Church, 3109 Swede Ave, Midland.

There will be a group discussion on an article by Father Tom Doyle in which he describes toxic clericalism as the cause of the abuse and gives specific changes needed to stop the sex abuse in the church. The article, “The Sexual Abuse Crisis is not a Crisis” by Doyle can be found at consciencemag.org/2019/04/03/the-sexual-abuse-crisis-is-not-a-crisis and should be read in advance of the meeting.

Doyle was one of the first to warn of the impending crisis. He is a Dominican priest, canon lawyer, addictions therapist and long-time supporter of justice and compassion for clergy sex abuse victims.

Voice of the Faithful is a group of Catholics that is concerned about the church and its future. Its goals are to support survivors of clergy sex abuse, to support priests of integrity and to shape structural change within the Catholic church.
