“The sex­ual abuse of chil­dren and young peo­ple by some priests and bish­ops, and the ways in which we bish­ops addressed these crimes and sins, have caused enor­mous pain, anger, and con­fu­sion. Inno­cent vic­tims and their fam­i­lies have suf­fered ter­ri­bly.… From the depths of our hearts, we bish­ops express great sor­row and pro­found regret for what the Catholic peo­ple are endur­ing.”
(Pre­am­ble, U.S.C.C.B. Char­ter for the Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren and Young Peo­ple)


Pro­tect­ing Our Chil­dren, What We’re Doing
