Support the 2019 Bishop's Appeal
As we launch the 2019 Bishop's Appeal we celebrate the ministries the Appeal supports and the thousands of people the Appeal impacts.
Clergy Disclosure List
Life is a gift, and we are charged by the Creator to protect it and to foster its growth wherever possible. As individuals, made in the image and likeness of God, we are challenged each day to pursue life over death, potential over limitations and light over darkness.
As the Bishop and shepherd of the Diocese of Green Bay, I share with you in the link below, the clergy disclosure list of diocesan priests with a substantiated allegation of sexual abuse of a minor against them.
With the disclosure of this list of clergy, a new chapter begins. A chapter that is about openness, and a chapter that can set a course toward healing for all those who have been hurt by the Church. I cannot express enough how deeply sorry I am for reopening this wound for victims/survivors and their families, but I am also grateful that there is now an opening for others who have been hurt by the Church to come forward. I invite you to please come forward or to seek the help of a health care professional.
Yours in Christ,
In early September 2018, Bishop David Ricken published his Seven Action Steps of Accountability report in which he listed ways the Diocese of Green Bay would commit to addressing the clergy sexual abuse crisis. Below is a link to The Compass Newspaper, displaying all of the information released since the report was published.
