A gathering of, and by, survivors

The plaque at the entrance to the garden at the Cathedral of Christ the Light says: "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." At 10:45 a.m. Sept. 28, survivors will gather, along with Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, to reaffirm those words. The idea for the event came from survivors who attend No More Secrets, the ongoing support group that meets every other month, February through December, in Oakland. The gathering is planned with a survivor-to-survivor emphasis, with an invitation to the larger community of friends and families of survivors. Speakers are expected to include two survivors, as well as deacons who work with survivors, and Bishop Barber. The event is expected to end at noon.
