Los Angeles Archdiocese Releases Files


Level of Cover-up Far Surpasses Worst Fears

After eleven years of litigation and a six year battle over the release of files, the more than 600 victims of clergy sexual abuse have secured for publication, additional confidential files which reveal a painful history of cover-up and betrayal by the Catholic Church. The confidential files were turned over to the victims as part of global settlement with the Archdiocese by the Benedictine Fathers of Sacred Heart Mission, Inc. aka St. Gregory’s Abbey, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus aka The Cabrini Sisters, the U.S Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Inc., the Oblate Fathers Western Province, Inc., the Marianist Province of the United States and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. “In the six years since the historic settlement was reached, our firm never wavered in our commitment to see that these secret files would be released to the public” said attorney Paul Kiesel.   LA-Arch     Articles-2
