Dear Friends in Christ,
In the March/April issue of the Catholic Herald magazine, you will read about the ongoing efforts of the Diocese of Sacramento to protect the young and vulnerable, to create truly safe spaces for all God’s People, and to atone for the devastating sin of clergy sexual abuse. All of these are lifetime endeavors; a key part of who we are as a Church for all time.
A vital aspect of owning and atoning for the sins of the past is resolving claims brought forward by victim-survivors in a fair and responsible manner. I have committed to this principle and attempt to live it in every case.
This year, there is a very important development I must share with you.
