Statement from Bishop R. Daniel Conlon in Support of USCCB Statement

Bishop R. Daniel Conlon stated the following: 

I offer my strong support for the decision made by Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, to seek an “Apostolic Visitation, working in concert with a national lay commission granted independent authority, to seek the truth” with regard to the matter of Archbishop McCarrick.  This scandal needs to be thoroughly investigated and brought into the light. I also support Cardinal DiNardo’s intention to seek the Holy Father’s concurrence with the plan of the USCCB’s Executive Committee to develop proposals concerning the reporting, investigation and resolution of child abuse complaints against bishops.
