The U.S. bishops heard Nov. 11 of plans to revise the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ existing Program of Priestly Formation for U.S. dioceses.
In a brief presentation Nov. 11 to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Boston’s Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley told the bishops gathered in Baltimore the Vatican may publish what it knows about the ascent to power of now-disgraced former U.S. Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick by Christmas, or perhaps the New Year.
An independent investigator hired by the Diocese has determined that the diocese failed to investigate allegations that a priest had sexually assaulted a man at a boxing training camp decades ago.
Over the past eight decades, 17 priests were credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor in the Diocese of Lansing, according to a new report issued on Friday.
Earlier this week, the cremated remains of over 300 individuals were laid to rest in a ceremony presided over by Bishop Earl Boyea of Lansing, Michigan. Some of the unclaimed remains had been kept in hospital storage for over two decades.
