Survivors have not, in the past, been able to tell their stories with confidence that a pastoral response will ensue as they tell of being shattered by clergy sex abuse. As the 12 stories read illustrated, survivors often feel absolutely alone with their shattering. As the stories illustrate, the shattering of body, mind and faith often leads to poor academic and occupational functioning; it can lead to mental health problems and even to suicide. Bravo to the church for committing to good pastoral care to survivors.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] In a hushed worship space in the Austin Convention Center late in the afternoon of July 4, bishops of the Episcopal Church stood and collectively offered laments and confession for the church’s role in sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse in a service called a “Liturgy of Listening.”The service featured 12 stories – six from women and six from men – from victims of sexual misconduct perpetrated by someone in the church. These were among 40 stories submitted by people in May in response to a bishops’ request for reflections from those hurt by the church.House of Bishops Vice President and El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves, center, reads one of the 12 stories that formed the backbone of the “Liturgy of Listening” July 4. Standing at the altar with her are Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Diocese of Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceEach story was read by a bishop of the same gender as the victim, in first-person accounts of what had happened to that person and how the church’s response had failed her or him. The stories included a church employee made uncomfortable by lewd comments from the male rector; an ordinand placed in a sexually awkward position by her bishop; a young man seduced by his priest’s wife; a woman raped by a priest from whom she was receiving spiritual direction; and a choir boy subjected to emotional, physical and sexual abuse. One included a plea that bishops care for all vulnerable people in their dioceses and “take seriously the plague of sexual misconduct that affects our branch of the Jesus Movement.”The service was planned by Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, who chairs the House of Bishops’ Pastoral Response to #MeToo Planning Team. In remarks in Episcopal News Service in late June, she said the service was designed to help set a framework for General Convention’s consideration of resolutions dealing with sexual misconduct, exploitation and gender disparity. These sins occur “because we aren’t seeing the image of Christ in one another,” she told ENS.This format was chosen, Duncan-Probe said, because “Episcopalians believe in the transformational power of liturgy.”Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe speaks to attendees before the July 4 “Liturgy of Listening.” She chaired the House of Bishops’ Pastoral Response to #MeToo Planning Team. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAfter the service opened with two reflective songs, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said that “the church has failed her people.” He said that as successors to the apostles, bishops “hold a particular responsibility to acknowledge the past and help the church move forward.” He said the service would be “a sacred container” for stories of abuse that never should have happened. He added, “There is pain in these stories, there is courage in the people who have offered them.” He then called on bishops and the entire church to honor the courage and vulnerability of victims by being committed to the work of repentance and reconciliation.

Linkedin WhatsApp Email “The airport is a terminally ill patient at this point.” THE deserted terminals in Shannon last week, due to the presence of volcanic ash in Irish airspace indicates what the future could hold for the airport,Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This is the view of Shannon’s mayor, Cllr Sean McLoughlin, who is also an airport taxi driver. “I left the airport after the last transatlantic flight landed on Thursday morning, April 15 and there was no work for us for a full week after that,’ he said.“This has been an incredibly bad week on top of two bad years. I’d say this year will be a complete right off for taxi drivers, because we have to look ahead to the following year financially.He said that the past week had provided an insight into what would happen if the airport were to close completely.“Thing’s are bad enough on an average day when there are only eight or nine flights arriving and departing and I’m seriously worried about the airport’s future”.Pointing out that last week’s disruption at the airport had not only impacted on air passengers but on those who work at the airport and rely on a day to day wage, Mayor McLoughlin said:“People don’t realise how the situation affected those with no regular income, like taxi drivers, car hire company owners and shop owners, as well as catering management.“Shannon Airport Authority is also losing out on landing fees at a time when they can scarcely afford to.“I understand that safety had to come first but Shannon is a terminally ill patient at this point. We need to get rid of the DAA who are prioritising Dublin for funding and resources”.The mayor called on SAA board members to meet with the Shannon Town Council last January to discuss the “haemorrhaging of services” at Shannon, but said as of yet they had failed to do so.He also said that the local authority was informed by Airport Director Martin Moroney in mid-February that neither he nor Brian O’Connell, the recently appointed SAA Chairman, were in a position to meet with town councillors in relation to the loss of Ryanair services.“The SAA needs to adopt a more visible and proactive approach to addressing the issues that effect the airport’s very survival.”.Calling on the Department of Transport to investigate the possibility of handing shared responsibility for the airport’s management to Shannon Development, he said:“While full autonomy for Shannon Airport might not be feasible at the present time, as the financial structures are not yet in place to support such a move, it would be feasible to suggest that management of the airport could be shared equally by Shannon Development and the SAA.“Shannon Development’s background in promoting tourism in and attracting new business to the region would complement the expertise that has been built up by the current management team at Shannon Airport.”“Every effort must be made to ensure that Shannon Airport’s viability is not dependent solely on income generated from the US Military’s use of the facility.“I look forward to hearing what the new Chairman of the Airport Authority has in mind for developing new business at the airport.”.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than April 2, 2021. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience or resources. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 3 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors.

When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages. To join the iRhythm class action, go to http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-register-1539.html or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action. No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

The said restriction has been imposed without any reasonable basis and without disclosing any cogent reason”, the plea stated.In the order issued on April 3, the J&K Home Secretary had observed that the speed restrictions have not not posed any hindrance to “COVID-19 control measures or to access online educational content”. Countering this claim, the PIL stated that the speed restrictions on internet during the lockdown period has brought “life of commercial and educational institutions to a standstill”.”Once access to Internet has been allowed, putting a restraint on the speed amounts to virtually taking back the benefits of Internet which also amounts to suspending internet in perpetuity, which is impermissible. The restriction on speed has no reasonable nexus with the object the Respondent is seeking to achieve. Presently, there is neither a public emergency in place nor any emergency has been declared, hence, the imposition of restraints on speed is completely illegal”, the plea stated.The petitioner further stated that 2G is an out-dated technology and considering the speed and the data with which an internet site downloads, the right to internet becomes redundant due to the restrictions.The Home Secretary had also stated that the the recent changes in J&K domicile law has the potential to be exploited by those “inimical to public peace”. It was also stated that there have been major recovery of arms on one hand and killings of civilians by terrorists on the other, apart from attempts to “encourage terrorism through uploading of provocative material”.In this connection, the petitioner argued that the 2G speed restriction fails the test of proportionality as explained by the SC in the case Anuradha Bhasin v Union of India.”The imposition of restriction on internet speed amounts to virtually denying the inhabitants of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir right to Internet which has been accepted by the Hon’ble Kerela High Court, in the case of Faheema Shirin R.K v. State of Kerala as a Fundamental Right and held by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in Anuradha Bhasin v. Union of India to be constitutionally protected”, the petitioner argued.The petitioner therefore sought removal of all speed restrictions on internet in J&K, and to quash the orders issued by the J&K administration in that regard.Another petition was filed in the Supreme Court on April 2 seeking restoration of 4G mobile services in the area during the period of lockdown. At 2G mobile internet speeds, the patients, doctors, and the general public of Jammu & Kashmir are unable to access the latest information, guidelines, advisories, and restrictions about COVID19 that are being made available and continuously updated online on a daily basis, stated that plea filed by “Foundation of Media Professionals”. The petitioner asserted that doctors are not able to access online resources on measures to curb COVID-19 at all, due to the internet speed being too slow to download heavy files. Further it was averred that slow internet speeds rendered “telemedicine” or online video consultation impossible. The petition stated that restoration of full-fledged internet services is also crucial to strictly implement the “work from home” policy being promoted by the government.The Central government had imposed a complete communications blackout in the erstwhile state of J&K in August 2019, right after abrogation of Article 370. Five months later in January 2020, on the basis of a Supreme Court order , the services were partially restored, only at 2G speed for mobile users. Access was provided only to a selected “white-listed” sites, and social media was completely blocked. The Supreme Court had observed that indefinite suspension of internet is not permissible and restrictions on internet have to follow the principles of proportionality under Article 19(2). The blockade on social media was lifted on March 4, but the speed was retained as 2G for mobile data.Next Story
