In 2004, Bishop Loverde launched a series
of diocesan-sponsored Masses to pray for the healing of sexual abuse victims and survivors.
“We so desire that you will experience healing and a new beginning,” Bishop Loverde said. “We carry you in our prayers to the Lord and ask Him to heal you as He alone can.”
The following year,
the Diocese of Arlington began a second event to support the sexually abused, a powerful Prayer Service focused on interceding for the healing of victims and survivors
celebrated by Reverend Mark S. Mealey, O.S.F.S., Vicar General for Administration.
Now, both the Prayer Services and Masses are a staple part of the ongoing ministerial efforts of the Arlington Diocese. The Prayer Services
include a survivor’s sharing of his/her journey towards greater healing from sexual abuse. Both the Masses
and Prayer Services are followed by a reception.
