A community of voices shares narrative duties in this audio presentation of the Philadelphia Investigating Grand Jury 2003 report on Catholic clergy sexual abuse of minors in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Heartrending episodes of pedophilia as well as outrageous conduct in the form of bureaucratic stonewalling were uncovered during the four-year investigation, led by Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham, into allegations against 62 Philadelphia priests. Those efforts, resulting in this document of despair, serve as a model for investigation into patterns and practices of abusive behavior, as well as administrative cover-up.
