Breakfast, sponsored by the University of Notre Dame: Sexual Harassment and Catholic Seminary Culture: The First Sociological Survey of Current Seminarians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The University of Notre Dame's McGrath Institute for Church Life will release embargoed research: a first-of-its-kind survey of current Catholic seminarians. It was conducted entirely by laity. The results come from 149 seminaries or houses of formation, with a 65% response rate among the approximately 2,375 seminarians contacted. The data reveal the state of seminaries and houses of formation on the specific question of sexual harassment, abuse, and misconduct in the Catholic Church—what seminarians have experienced, what they are thinking on the issue, and how seriously they perceive it is being addressed by their superiors. 

Breakfast is sponsored by the University of Notre Dame.
