BISHOP PATRICK WRITES
“From October 28th to November 8th the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, established by the Government, will turn its attention to the present situation in the Catholic Church in England and Wales.  On November 6th Cardinal Vincent Nichols will give evidence to the inquiry.  He will once again offer an unreserved apology to all who have suffered at the hands of the Catholic Church and express profound regret especially to the survivors and their families.  Both our achievements in safeguarding and our failures will be highlighted and also the need to listen to the voice and experience of survivors.  This will be a painful time of deeper purification for our catholic community.  Please keep all involved in your prayers, especially those who carry the heavy burden of childhood abuse every day of their lives”.
