St. John Neumann Action

St. John Neumann Catholic Community, which is staffed by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, in the diocese of Arlington has an Action Committee of parishioners who, after 2018 with its revelations about then-Cardinal McCarrick and the PA Attorney General Report, organized to offer care to survivors and to get involved in supporting further change in the Church. To their credit, they spent much time gathering information and in discernment together, and that included inviting groups (e.g., Spirit Fire) to speak. They host a powerful webpage of support for victims on their parish website, and most recently closed National Child Abuse Awareness month with a virtual Taize prayer service one evening.
