Healing asked for abuse victims

JASPER,Ind. - What the Catholic Church called a "prayer service of healing" for abuse victims drew more than 100 people to St. Joseph Church here this afternoon.

The Diocese of Evansville held the 2 p.m. prayer service months after disclosing allegations a Catholic pastor had molested more than 10 people. The allegations against Monsignor Othmar Schroeder, who died in 1988, are the most against a priest in the diocese's 64-year history.
