EXPERT OPINION - Prof. Thomas Groome (Theology), director of the Institute for Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry, at left, and Graduate School of Social Work Continuing Education Director Vincent Lynch, right, were joined by Rev. John Allan Loftus, SJ, a professor of psychology and psychology of religion at Regis College, University of Toronto, for a Feb. 27 press conference in Burns Library on the findings of the John Jay report on clergy sexual abuse. Fr. Loftus, the former executive director of a private hospital providing diagnostic, assessment, and treatment services for religious professionals in need of emotional or spiritual care, along with Groome and Lynch, gave their reaction to the report, which was released last Friday by the National Review Board, a panel established by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops in response to the crisis in the Church.
