Materials Related to the Recent Abuse Scandal

Since the unfortunate news out of Pennsylvania has once again thrust the Catholic Church into the international spotlight regarding the treatment of children and vulnerable adults, a wealth of materials and responses have been produced to educate the masses on our efforts to help prevent these horrible situations from ever happening. Please see below the collected documents pertaining to our local and global Church.
