Conference on clergy sex abuse


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The recent string of accusations against abuse in the Catholic Church, is leading to more thoughtful and open discussions. Case in point, a Milwaukee university is hosting an international conference about the clergy sex abuse scandal.

The event will feature victims' stories, panelists from Australia, Ireland and across the United States and it will look at the impact on other clergy.

Representatives from the Boston Archdiocese, where the scandal broke nearly a decade ago, will also make a presentation. The Archbishop of Dublin, the Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, will give an address. The conference, called "Harm, Hope, and Healing: International Dialogue on the Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal," will be held at the Marquette University Law School.
