Bishop Gainer to host Listening Sessions

We Pledge . .

Bishop Ronald Gainer will host listening sessions throughout the Diocese of Harrisburg in January and February of 2019. The Bishop hopes that parishioners will attend so that he can hear their concerns and questions and so that they can also learn of his future plans for the Diocese.  The goal of the sessions is to address the Grand Jury Report, the Diocese’s response to abuse, our path forward, or any other questions or related concerns. Each session will include opening remarks from Bishop Gainer and retired Pennsylvania State Police Capt. Janet McNeal, recently hired to oversee the youth protection efforts of the Diocese. Following their brief remarks, the floor will be opened for questions.
