DUBLIN ARCHDIOCESE MASS FOR CHILDREN WHO SUFFERED SEXUAL ABUSE.
On Sunday 20th February at 3pm a Liturgy of Lament and Repentance for the
sexual abuse of children by priests and religious will be held in St. Mary’s
Pro-Cathedral. Margaret Woulfe will interpret this mass.

The liturgy will ask the forgiveness of God and of all survivors for the
failure of those Church leaders and many others in the family of the Church
to respond with love, integrity, honesty, understanding and compassion to
the pain and distress of survivors. During the liturgy which has been
prepared principally by survivors, Cardinal Sean O’Malley and Archbishop
Diarmuid Martin will wash the feet of a group of people who have suffered in
various ways through abuse.”
