Marquette hosts international conference on clergy abuse

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee university is hosting an international conference about the clergy sex abuse scandal.

The event will feature victims' stories, panelists from Australia, Ireland and across the United States and it will look at the impact on other clergy.

Representatives from the Boston Archdiocese, where the scandal broke nearly a decade ago, will also make a presentation.

The Archbishop of Dublin, the Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, will give an address on Monday. 

The conference, called "Harm, Hope, and Healing: International Dialogue on the Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal," will be held at the Marquette University Law School on Monday and Tuesday.
