Cardinal Donald Wuerl celebrates Mass on Aug. 15 at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in the District

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".

President to skip Asian summits
While in Europe , the president also will visit Ireland to "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations". It was originally reported that Trump would be visiting our shores in November after his visit to Papa New Guinea.

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.
