Video Montage of National Day of Sorrow and PromiseIn a collective response from Catholic religious orders across the country, religious women and men held a National Day of Sorrow and Promise on the first Sunday of Advent and the start of a new Church year. Catholic Religious Australia (CRA) says the initiative reflects a new way of being Church in Australia.
The day acknowledged survivors of abuse within the Catholic Church and all those who have been hurt by that abuse. Underpinning this, is a clear promise for a better, safer future.
