Catholics encouraged to acknowledge Blue Knot Day

abuse awareness day

The CEO of the Truth Justice and Healing Council has written to more than 1,500 Catholic priests and women and men from religious orders encouraging support for the activities of Blue Knot Day. 



Blue Knot Day and other activities will conclude this Sunday, November 3. The week’s activities are part of an annual awareness campaign coordinated by the victims of child sexual abuse group, Adult Survivors of Childhood Trauma.

TJH Council CEO Francis Sullivan said Blue Knot Day is an important event that focuses on the damage done to victims of child sexual abuse. 'This year’s Blue Knot activities are focused on recovery and spreading the message to both survivors and all community members that with the right care and support, recovery is possible,' Mr Sullivan said.

'It is important all members of the community, and particularly members of the Catholic Church, do whatever we can to help victims and survivors.'
