New Vigil Location!


The next Friday vigil is scheduled for December 2nd, at Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, 1723 Race St. Phila., at 12 noon.

PLEASE JOIN US!


VOTF of Greater Phila has maintained a prayerful vigil, first at the Archdiocesan offices, now at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, at 1723 Race Street. nearly every First Friday at noon for over 10 years. We carry signs asking for more support for the survivors, financial transparency, and parish audits. We find that our presence reminds those in the building that this issue has not gone away. We stand with survivors and parents, hand out flyers, and pray together. Passersby stop and tell us their stories.

WHY NOW?  House Judiciary Chairman Marsico has indicated that he intends to take up an SOL bill on April 4th, that is similar to House Bill 1947…but WITHOUT a retroactive window.*  We intend to make it clear on the HILL that this is unacceptable.  True SOL reform should help ALL victims of childhood sexual abuse…
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!

HOW CAN YOU HELP?  If you are a SURVIVOR and would be willing to speak, please fill out the Child Sexual Abuse Survivor Victim Statement and forward to Pam at poddo@pahouse.net.

ADVOCATES who are willing to present a REAL DEAL versus RAW DEAL talking point, please indicate your association and interest to Pam at poddo@pahouse.net.

PLEASE NOTE:  In case of inclement weather, the East Wing Rotunda has been reserved for the event.


We work towards achieving our mission by pursuing three goals:

Support survivors of clergy sexual abuse                      

Support priests of integrity     

Shape structural change within the Catholic Church
