Catholics reflect on scandal in Holy Week

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Roman Catholics attending Holy Week services in Washington say they remain faithful to the church despite emerging reports of more clergy abuse and cover-ups.

Most worshippers departing St. Matthew's cathedral Thursday declined to comment on the scandals. Several, however, said they still believe the Catholic church is the one founded by Jesus Christ.

Worshipper Stephen White said the scandals are horrible, but the church has always been made up of sinners, including the apostles who betrayed and abandoned Jesus before his crucifixion.
