Chippewa GRACE is a group of Catholic laity and clergy in the Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin area who seek healing and renewal from the scourge of sexual abuse on the part of clergy and others in the Church. Through listening, compassion, prayer, and education on trauma and its effects, we seek to create a welcoming environment for all those who have been affected. We also aim to bring about a greater awareness of sexual abuse by promoting ongoing conversation and dialogue within our community. We believe that true healing and renewal is only found in Christ who always renews and heals his Church.
