Irish archbishops, Vatican discuss plans for apostolic visitation

Catholic World News - October 06, 2010

Following the meetings the Irish bishops’ conference reported that the visitation will “give particular attention to victims of abuse and their families, but will also meet with and listen to a variety of people, including ecclesiastical authorities, lay faithful and those involved with the crucial work of safeguarding of children.” All parties to the planning sessions agreed that the exercise should be “an instrument of purification and healing for the Church in Ireland and help to restore the trust and hope of the faithful there.”
