As anniversary of papal summit on abuse ends, survivors gather in vigil to support Argentine deaf survivors of abuse who Pope Francis has refused to meet with while in Rome this week

Victims and their advocates will declare the next step forward that must be done by Pope Francis in the global clergy abuse crisis

WHAT / WHY
Deaf victims of childhood sexual abuse and torture by Roman Catholic clergy from Argentina, along with their human rights attorneys and survivors from different countries will gather for a twilight vigil. The survivors from Argentine have traveled this week to Geneva and Rome to testify to human rights violations by the Holy See, obtain documents from the Vatican Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) concerning a secret investigation by Vatican representatives in Argentina and meet with Pope Francis. What has been the outcome of their efforts? What must be done by Pope Francis in the global clergy abuse crisis?
