Dear Faithful of the Archdiocese,

As the Archdiocese continues to review the grand jury report that was released this morning, there is one assertion in the report that must be addressed immediately. The report states that there remain in ministry archdiocesan priests who have credible allegations of abuse against them. I assure all the faithful that there are no archdiocesan priests in ministry today who have an admitted or established allegation of sexual abuse of a minor against them.

Please join me in prayer for healing.

Sincerely yours,

Cardinal Justin Rigali
Archbishop of Philadelphia
