An Update from the Bishop of the Diocese of the Upper Midwest
Dear Family of God,
Last month, Bishop Stewart released a very important letter regarding a devastating situation of credible alleged sexual abuse involving a former leader in our diocese.
Today, I’m writing to share another update from Bishop Stewart on the ongoing investigation of abuse in that congregation. You can read this letter here. As a warning, the contents of this letter are of a sensitive nature and may be difficult to read, especially for those who may have personal stories of trauma or abuse.
I know information about such a difficult situation may elicit a variety of responses among us. Our clergy and catechists will work to make ourselves available to anyone seeking pastoral care or to discuss how our church responds to allegations of abuse. Please reach out to us if you would like to continue this conversation with one of us in person.
Grace and peace,
