The parishioners of St. Vincent’s share a deep concern over the
crises of abuse and lack of accountability in the Church, and the culture that contributed to this terrible situation. Committed to healing, justice, and peace, we call for,
and work towards, the ecclesial and social change that we so greatly need.
St. Vincent’s Ad Hoc Committee on Church Reform
We, the People of God, are birthing a more transparent and collaborative Church.
- We show up to initiate and grow transformative, reciprocal, and engaged relationships among laity, religious, and clergy.
- We hope to create and sustain meaningful change in the power dynamics and the structure of the Church.
- We will work toward the restoration and healing necessary due to the sexual abuse of children by priests and its cover-up.
