Wounded Body of Christ

A Parish Group Discussion Guide on Abuse in the Catholic Curch.

The purpose of these adult faith formation materials is fourfold:

  1. To engage, through education and faith sharing, adult Catholics whose faith has been challenged by the presence and effect of clergy abuse in the Church
  2. To provide an opportunity for the Church (at all levels) to discuss clergy abuse in a constructive, reflective, and prayerful manner
  3. To highlight the call for justice and mercy-making as necessary agents in healing
  4. To solicit new ideas and means of protecting the body of Christ from future abuse and to share this feedback with appropriate local and national leadership

By Matthew W. Halbach Ph.D.
