There will be a special mass held this weekend in St. Lawrence County designed to try and bring peace to victims of sexual abuse.

According to 7 News, Bishop Terry LaValley of the Diocese of Ogdensburg plans to hold a “Healing Mass” at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Ogdensburg.

The hope is to try and alleviate pain suffered by the thousands of people who were sexually abused by the overall Catholic clergy over several decades.
