The Chilean bishops' conference announced Tuesday the members of a "Listening Service" set up to welcome and guide victims of sexual abuse.

The members of the Listening Service belong to the National Council for the Prevention of Abuse and Accompaniment of the Victims of the Chilean bishops' conference and will have as their mission "to welcome and guide" those people who could not meet with the papal envoys.
Appointed by Archbishop Scicluna, the members are Pilar Ramírez, the current coordinator of the council; Josefina Martínez; Sister Marcela Sáenz; Fr. Larry Yévenes; and Fr. David Albornoz.
