Nova Scotia diocese to hold church service for victims of sexual abuse

PORT HAWKESBURY, N.S. - The Roman Catholic Diocese of Antigonish, N.S., says it will hold a special service to acknowledge the pain of victims of sexual abuse.

Father Donald MacGillivray says he hopes the victims of the abuse by members of the clergy will attend the service, which is being held at 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Joseph's Church in Port Hawkesbury.

MacGillivray says the service was agreed upon as part of a class-action lawsuit against several priests dating back more than 50 years.

The diocese paid out $16 million in compensation for the 125 confirmed and alleged victims of sexual abuse.
