In the wake of the clergy abuse scandal, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has looked for ways to heal the harm. Janine Geske, former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice and Marquette Law School professor, has led conversations on restorative justice at the Vatican and throughout the world. Justice Geske will be joined by Father Dan Griffith from Our Lady of Lourdes in Minneapolis. Father Griffith will introduce restorative justice in a biblical and theological context. Justice Geske will then share more about this work from her experience and introduce and conduct a healing circle.
