A Church in Crisis: A Local Diocese's Response
Start Date: 12/4/2018Start Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
"A Church in Crisis: A Local Diocese's Response," the next installment of the University's Uncomfortable Conversations series.

Bishop Lawrence Persico, who has led the Roman Catholic Diocese of Erie since 2012, will be interviewed by Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter Debra Erdley in a Dec. 4 forum open to the Edinboro campus community and the general public.

Bishop Persico was publicly lauded by Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro in a New York Times story for his direct and transparent handling of the clergy sex abuse scandal. His approach to dealing with allegations of sexual abuse by priests and laity in the Erie Diocese has attracted local, national and international media attention from news outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, PBS Newshour, National Public Radio, the Philadelphia Inquirer and German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel, the largest such publication in Europe. Prior to his appointment as bishop of Erie, Persico served as vicar general and chancellor of the Diocese of Greensburg, where he also was a parish priest.

An award-winning journalist, Erdley has provided extensive coverage of the Pennsylvania grand jury report of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. Released in late summer 2018, the report revealed credible allegations of abuse of more than 1,000 victims by 300 priests over multiple decades. Erdley also provided substantive coverage of sexual abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky was convicted and PSU’s mishandling of the situation led to the ouster in 2011 of legendary football coach Joe Paterno and eventually university President Graham Spanier. The scandal cost the university millions of dollars in settlements.
