The sexual abuse of children and vulnerable adults in the Catholic Church is an outrage. FADICA stands in solidarity with the survivors of sexual abuse and prays for the healing of all victims. We condemn the practices, cultures, and actions that have led to or allowed this abuse to occur. We call for immediate interventions to end sexual abuse and the individual and systemic practices which propagate them.
