Programs and Events for Sexual Abuse Victim Survivors


Our events began in 2004 with a Mass of Healing.  At that Mass Bishop Emeritus Loverde said "We so desire that you will experience healing and a new beginning,". "We carry you in our prayers to the Lord and ask Him to heal you as He alone can.” That year he launched a series of diocesan-sponsored Masses to pray for the healing of sexual abuse victims and survivors.

The program has grown to offer sharing groups, Healing  Masses and prayer services, an annual spiritual retreat, educational presentations, and referrals.

We welcome you to join us when you are ready to explore different opportunities for prayer and fellowship.

In case of inclement weather, cancellations for any of these services or meetings will be announced on the victim assistance voicemail, the phone numbers are listed below.
