In response to the crisis of abuse unfolding in our Church, The CatholicTV Network is embarking on a six-month journey of penance and prayer called Together We Rebuild. Our goal is to provide hope and encouragement for all those who are suffering and to offer prayerful resources focused on healing and restoration. Each month, Together We Rebuild will be guided by a theme and will include corresponding multimedia content. Please join us in penance and prayer. Let’s begin rebuilding together.
