Response To The Report From The Bishop

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – The Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg’s Bishop Ronald Gainer responded to the release of the grand jury report on child sexual abuse. Gainer said he read the report with “great sadness.” He expressed “profound sorrow and apologized to the survivors of child sex abuse, the Catholic faithful and the general public for the abuses that took place and for those Church officials who failed to protect children.” Last week, the Harrisburg Diocese released a list of clergy and seminarians accused of sexual abuse of minors. The list is available at youthprotectionhbg.com. Last week, Bishop Gainer announced that those who have been accused of sexual misconduct will have their names removed from any position of honor throughout the Diocese. Gainer has directed that the name of every Bishop since 1947, the beginning date of the Grand Jury’s investigation, be removed from any building, facility, or room in the Diocese.
