 If you have questions surrounding the Harrisburg Catholic Diocese Clergy Sex Abuse Report you may soon be able to get answers. 

During the next two months, Harrisburg Bishop Ronald Gainer is traveling to 9 parishes where he will begin taking questions during an open forum series of seminars.

A diocese spokesperson says Bishop Gainer is looking forward to speaking with parishioners one on one to help them through this understanding process.

During the meetings, he will begin with opening remarks and then the floor will be open and to ask him questions about clergy sex abuse. 

The grand jury report released in August uncovered sexual misconduct allegations against more than 300 priests.

The diocese says they will discuss new programs, procedures and what the future of the diocese looks like. 

Survivors can contact the victim advocate office if they would like to be accompanied to the sessions.

The first session is January 10th at St. Catherine Laboure Parish in Dauphin County.
