LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A local group is taking a stand against sex abuse in the Catholic Church. Concerned Catholics who want to restore integrity say they are appalled the church has not taken more of a proactive approach.

"We've got this black eye because a priest gets convicted or accused of abusing a child," a concerned catholic, Nick Pfeiffer, said. "The archdiocese finds out about it and moves the priest around."

The group says Catholic churches do many great things in the community and they just want the Archdiocese to fight to keep children safe in the church.
