The Archdiocese of Baltimore is hosting virtual town hall meetings in light of an explosive Pennsylvania Grand Jury report.

That report listed the names of more than 300 clergy members who are accused of sexually abusing hundreds of children.

Baltimore Archbishop William Lori says he decided to host the town hall meetings after speaking with parishioners who are calling for accountability from the Catholic church.

Archbishop Lori says he wasn't able to meet with every parishioner, but he wants to make sure the needs of all of them are met.

He's hoping the town hall meetings will do that.

The virtual meetings launched on Sunday, September 23rd.
