Catholics in Evansville joined Bishop Joseph Siegel in praying for healing in response to the clergy sex abuse scandal Monday night at Sacred Heart Church.

At the beginning of the service, the bishop walked down the main aisle before he prostrated himself in front of the altar. A cantor led the church in a litany while people kneeled in the pews behind the bishop. 

Together, they prayed for healing and reparation.
