Healing Garden dedicated

Tim Lynch, seated at right, one of the committee of clergy sex abuse survivors who planned a healing garden adjacent to the Cathedral of Christ the Light, listens to Koichi Hara, center, explain the stone sculpture at the garden’s center. Hara was representing the sculptor, Izumi Masatoshi, at the garden dedication Oct. 11. During the dedication, Bishop Allen Vigneron read the entrance plaque: “This Healing Garden, planned by survivors, is dedicated to those innocents sexually abused by members of the clergy. We remember, and we affirm, never again.” Bishop Emeritus John Cummins also attended the dedication. (See the full text for Bishop Vigneron's remarks.)
