Our Message

If you are survivor of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, we are glad you have found your way to this website. We invite you to read our Open Letter to Survivors for a message of apology and support signed by hundreds of Catholics in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and throughout the country.

We are doing our best to listen to the voices and wisdom of survivors as we move forward with this work, but we know we have a lot to learn.  We are grateful to our Survivor Advisory Panel for their important guidance along the way. 

If you have ideas for how our group can serve survivors, we would love to hear them. Also, if you see anything on this website or in this ministry that you find problematic, we would appreciate hearing your constructive criticism. 

Most of all, we would be honored to connect with you and hear your experience and perspective. Please reach out to Sara at saralarson@awakemilwakee.org. We promise to treat any communications with compassion and confidentiality.
