Towards Healing notice

"On 9 December, the Royal Commission into institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse will examine the Catholic Church's protocols for addressing sexual abuse within the Church, Towards Healing", Mr Sullivan said.


"This will be the first time the Catholic Church will be the central focus of the Royal Commission."


"Catholics around Australia need to know how the Church leaders are approaching the issue of sexual abuse and the disposition we are taking to the Commission. This is succinctly outlined in the commitment statement."


The Truth Justice and Healing Council is engaging with the Royal Commission into institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on behalf of the Catholic Church in Australia.


The Commitment Statement can be read at:
