This is the third installment of the What’s Next Series exploring the role of laity in the Catholic Church.
Speaker: Thomas Doyle
Speaker Biography: Thomas Doyle is a priest, canon lawyer, writer for National Catholic Reporter, addictions therapist and long-time supporter of justice and compassion for clergy sex abuse victims.
Rev. Thomas P. Doyle, who has a doctorate in canon law and five master’s degrees, sacrificed a rising career at the Vatican Embassy to become an outspoken advocate for church abuse victims. Since 1984, when he became involved with the issue of sexual abuse of children by Catholic clergy while serving at the Embassy, he has become an expert in the canonical and pastoral dimensions of this problem—working directly with victims, their families, accused priests, and Church officials.
