An apologetic discussion

Boston Globe

No one knows the value of a public apology better than Donna Morrissey. Still, it's a little odd that the former communications secretary for the Archdiocese of Boston is taking part in a panel discussion titled ''Good Business Means Sometimes Having to Say I'm Sorry." Joining Morrissey, now with the Red Cross, for the Oct. 19 roundtable are former Suffolk County DA Ralph Martin, ProMutual Group's Maureen Mondor, and Solomon McCown's Ashley McCown. Hired by Cardinal Bernard Law to burnish the church's image, Morrissey eventually became the public face of the clergy sex abuse crisis, an experience she later conceded was a ''public relations nightmare."
