Statement from Bishop Schlert - August 15, 2018
Every Bishop Inherits the history of his Diocese, It falls to him to shoulder any failings from the past, to apologize! to ask forgiveness, to promote healing I and to do what he can to prevent recurrence. The Grand Jury Report is a sad and humbling account of the Priesthood used for evil purposes.  The victims and survivors of clergy sexual abuse have suffered terribly, and it is my sincere hope that the Report is an important step in their healing and recovery. Keep reading
