Rev. Dr. Katie Cannon, Colleague and Sister in Faith

— Categories: ,

FaithTrust Institute mourns the death of Rev. Dr. Katie Cannon. We have lost a colleague and sister in faith whose contributions are now foundational to theological inquiry. Cannon insisted that that academic pursuit of theological studies must always be grounded in the real lives of women and people of color. In doing so she taught us new ways to do theology. Her work and her leadership were great gifts to the church and the beloved community leading us to manifest liberation and justice. She will be greatly missed by many.

Statement on the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report on Child Sexual Abuse by Catholic Clergy

Statement on the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report on Child Sexual Abuse by Catholic Clergy

— Categories: , , ,

300 priests. Thousands of children. A powerful institution. Decades of harm and betrayal. It’s been almost twenty years since the first public acknowledgement of child sexual abuse by Catholic priests in the United States. In the years that followed, we’ve seen similar stories come to light from all around the world. We are grateful for the painful work of the members of the Grand Jury. The two years they spent working on this investigation has shaken the faith community to its core, but it has also vindicated the thousands of victims who have been silenced, ignored, and left to suffer with deep wounds—psychological, physical, as well as spiritual.
