The purpose of these adult faith formation materials is fourfold:
- 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
- To provide an opportunity for the Church (at all levels) to discuss clergy abuse in a constructive, reflective, and prayerful manner
- To highlight the call for justice and mercy-making as necessary agents in healing
- 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
