Cardinal Donald Wuerl spoke addressing the current scandal facing the Catholic church following a mass in Washinton DC a parishioner heckled him

One parishioner shouted "shame on you" and walked out as Cardinal Donald Wuerl spoke about the scandal on Sunday, while another turned her back in protest of him, according to video posted on social media.

Cardinal Donald Wuerl was rebuked after asking the 200 people attending Sunday Mass at Washington's Annunciation Catholic Church to forgive his "errors in judgment" and "inadequacies".

Wuerl faces accusations that he mishandled clergy sexual misconduct while he was a bishop in Pittsburgh.

A Pennsylvania grand jury report released last month detailed sex abuse of children by "predator priest" in six Pennsylvania diocese, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg.

Wherl is facing accused of mishandling clergy abuse incidents while he was a bishop in Pittsburgh. Wuerl noted the interruption but continued with his speech. "We know there's confusion".

There's nobody in our program who thinks those things about any player on our team, let alone the two players he described. Quarterback Shea Patterson completed just 20 of 30 passes for 227 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception.

Wuerl also urged the parish to pray for and remain loyal to Pope Francis. "I wish I could wipe it away but that's not the way it works". "Increasingly, it is clear that he is the object of considerable animosity", Wuerl said.

In a statement, the Washington archdiocese said Wuerl received "applause and expressions of support from the parishioners" as he concluded.

Many have called for Wuerl's resignation - including Catholic teachers who have protested outside his services - amid allegations that he tried to covered up claims decades of sexual abuse claims.

"How does it feel knowing children were sexually abused at the hands of priests under your watch?"

Terms used by Wuerl and other Catholic officials like "errors in judgment" or "inappropriate contact" anger people who want abusive priests held accountable, she said.
