The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 045: Confronting the Sexual Abuse Crisis in the Church February 5, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Bishop Thomas Dowd of the Archdiocese of Montreal to discuss the sexual abuse crisis in the Church.

Bishop Dowd made headlines when he helped to bring one particular priest offender to justice even accompanying one of the victims to the police station to submit his report. Bishop Dowd is a fantastic, graceful, and hopeful voice of leadership in the Church and our conversation is an incredible one. What a blessing to sit down and chat with such a wonderful example of Christ-like leadership within the Catholic clergy. This conversation will be an absolute blessing to listeners.

To find out more about Bishop Dowd you can visit his website or follow him on Twitter where he is active daily.
