Many diocese and religious communities have made public the list of clergy with credible allegations of the sexual abuse of minors. In the spirit of accountability, we are making public a list of MSC priests and brothers who have been removed from their ministries over credible allegations of sexual abuse of a minor and who were reported to authorities. We have decided to release the names of those MSC to offer healing and hope to all victims of sexual abuse and their families. We ask for your prayers for the victims, their families, and the Church.
