Voice of the Faithful lives to pray another day

 |  NCR Today

Voice of the Faithful, the lay Catholic group founded during the church's clergy sex abuse scandal, has raised enough money to keep operating.

The group sent a letter to its members last week, saying its financial situation was so dire that it might be forced to close its Needham headquarters unless it raised $60,000. Today, the group said its plea raised more than $63,000. The money will be used to pay operating costs for July and August.
