Promise to Protect, Listening Session Questions and Responses

In early September, Bishop David Ricken published an “action steps to accountability” report in which he listed ways the Diocese of Green Bay would commit to addressing the clergy sexual abuse crisis. Since that report was published, Bishop Ricken attended a series of listening sessions across the diocese. In late September, The Compass began publishing Bishop Ricken’s reponses to questions received at the listening sessions.
