COLORADO SPRINGS. Bishop Michael Sheridan will host a “Facebook Live” discussion on the issue of clergy sexual abuse on Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. Participants can view the discussion and submit questions on the Diocese of Colorado Springs’ Facebook page, www.facebook.com/CatholicDioceseCOS. Questions may also be submitted in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a pastoral letter that was sent to all parishes in the diocese on Aug. 24, Bishop Sheridan stated, “I join with my brother bishops in our determination to ensure that appropriate measures are taken to provide effective oversight of ourselves, as well as complete transparency whenever — and against whomever — a credible accusation of abuse is made.”
Bishop Sheridan will also celebrate a Mass of Reparation at St. Mary’s Cathedral on Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. All are invited.
