Reform Group Calls for Assembly of Archdiocese

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel [Milwaukee WI]
April 30, 2003

The local chapter of a national Catholic reform group created in the wake of the clergy sexual abuse scandals has asked Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan to hold an archdiocesan-wide synod to plan for the future, re-establish trust and unify the faithful. Such an assembly would include many lay people.

Terry Ryan, regional coordinator of Voice of the Faithful, Southeastern Wisconsin Affiliate, sent a letter to Dolan on Monday asking him "to convoke a synod that would gather people from all areas of the archdiocese to discuss issues and establish goals for the good of the church in southeastern Wisconsin."

She noted that the last archdiocesan synod here was held in 1987.
