RE: Response to Presidential Statement Issued in Consultation with the Executive Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

FROM: Most Reverend John O. Barres, Bishop, Diocese of Rockville Centre

“I support Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in his articulation of the need for decisive answers regarding the issues raised in the recent letter of Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano.

Further, I fully support Cardinal DiNardo’s pursuit of a dedicated plan to make reporting of abuse and misconduct by bishops easier, and to improve procedures for resolving complaints against bishops.

Finally, I echo Cardinal DiNardo’s apology to the survivors of abuse and the families who have lost a loved one to abuse. We pray for them as we pray for the Church during this difficult period in Her history.”
