Petition to adopt and fund an independent phone reporting system for victims of clergy abuse statewide in Massachusetts by the Roman Catholic Church Leaders.

* Fund an independent clergy abuse reporting hotline .

* All review board findings of complaints be presented to the bishop and victim-survivor.  The diocesan review board, bishop and survivor with their chosen advocacy would proceed to a restorative process where their complaints and testimonies could be communicated in a supportive, empowering and transparent setting. This is not a process or alternative to resolving lawsuits against the diocese rather a restorative response and mission of the church and review board to help and aid victims of clergy abuse deal with the life long effects. This is a separate process and commitment in addition to any financial settlements of the victim survivor.
