  • Responding to Clergy Sexual Abuse

    The recent revelations of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report, the abuse of Cardinal McCarrick, and other crises in our Church have surfaced a range of emotions for Catholics from anger to horror to shame to betrayal. The Campus Ministry staff and the Jesuit community invite members of the Loyola community into dialogue, learning, and conversation. This is a topic that needs to be discussed. We have compiled a list of resources and action items related to this issue. On December 17, 2018, the Midwest Province released the names of Jesuits with established allegations of sexual abuse of minors since 1955. An established allegation is based on the facts and circumstances where there is a reasonable certainty that the accusation is true.
