Promote Healing of Victims-Survivors
The process victims-survivors of abuse take to heal from clerical abuse is extremely important to us, which is why our office connects them with the appropriate people and/or organizations to receive the help they need. In addition, we offer outreach programs for victims-survivors, in hopes that they’ll feel comfortable sharing an allegation and recover properly.
OPCY strives to support victims-survivors of clergy sexual abuse with the resources and support they need to begin or continue to their healing journey. This includes therapy, healing masses, peace circles and opportunities to connect with other survivors.
It’s never too late to report an instance of abuse, and all victims-survivors have the right to report an allegation to the authorities, but are also welcome to work with our office. If you are seeking referrals for counseling, spiritual direction, self-help groups, educational information, or more, please call 312.534.8267.
