//Bishops announce Day of Prayer for survivors and victims of sexual abuse

The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference is organising a Day of Prayer in Ireland for the survivors and victims of clerical sexual abuse.

In a statement issued following their Autumn General Meeting in Maynooth, the bishops said the move is in response to a recent request by Pope Francis to all Bishops’ Conferences around the world.

In response to the request of Pope Francis, bishops have asked the Council for Liturgy of the Bishops’ Conference to coordinate the preparation of liturgical resources for the dedicated Day of Prayer.

The Day of Prayer will take place on the First Friday of Lent which falls on 3 March 2017.
