Responding to the Sexual Abuse Crisis

The sexual abuse of children remains one of the greastest acts of violence in society.  It robs children of their innocence, scars they family and wounds the fabric of a culture.  When the abuse happens within a faith community, the wounds are even deeper as the journey of faith is impacted.  The St. Raymond Community seeks to be an instrument of healing for all who have been wounded in any way by the sexual abuse crisis that become known in the Church since 2002.
