Here's note just received from Voice of the Faithful

National Vigil of Sorrow

Good Friday is a day of sorrow and mourning for the Catholic Church. On this solemn day, we stand in solidarity with victims of clergy abuse and, as Pope Benedict requested of the faithful in Ireland, devote ourselves to the healing and renewal of the Church. We call on our pastoral leaders to say “Stop the Hiding; Start the Healing.”

Members of Voice of the Faithful will gather in Boston, New York, Chicago and Washington, DC. We will pray together as we stand in support of the survivor community. The clergy abuse scandal has plagued the Catholic Church for far too long. It is time for accountability and transparency from the leaders of the Church, an apology is not enough. We invite everyone to join us for all or part of this special national event.

New York City
- St. Patrick's Cathedral, 12pm - 3pm
