A distinguished panel of speakers will reflect on the ongoing Catholic clergy sexual abuse crises from their particular scholarly and professional vantage points—psychology, law, theology, religious journalism, and ethics. This conversation is especially timely in light of the recently released Pennsylvania Grand Jury report and a wider spate of revelations in the United States and around the world about clergy abuse and its concealment. By asking three fundamental questions—”What?” “Why?” and “What now?”—this event seeks to contribute to well-informed and effective responses by and from Catholics, citizens, and all who are impacted by this reality.

This event is open to faculty/staff, students, and the public.
