The leader of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh said Monday the church is human and wants to apologize for any pain its leaders may have caused.

Bishop David Zubik held a special Service of Apology at St. Paul's Cathedral in Oakland open to anyone who may have experienced emotional or physical pain from the church.

90.5 WESA's Virginia Alvino talked to Larkin Page-Jacobs about the service's message and why some sexual abuse victims find it troubling.
