|RE:||Announcement by Diocese of Brooklyn of Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program for abuse victims|
|FROM:||Sean P. Dolan|
Since October of 2016 when the Archdiocese of New York announced its Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program for abuse victims, the Diocese of Rockville Centre has been considering the possibility of a similar program for this diocese. This possibility has been the subject of thorough study that is nearly complete. At this time, it is our prayer that the program announced today by the Diocese of Brooklyn is as successful as the Archdiocesan program.
