Austin, Texas, Oct 11, 2018 / 14:00 pm
All 15 Catholic dioceses in Texas plan to release names of clergy who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor, according to a release from the Texas Conference of Catholic Bishops. The release will include all accusations dating back to the 1950s.
In an Oct. 10 statement released by the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops, Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller of San Antonio said that, because of the size of the state, compiling comprehensive lists will take some time.
Texas has 8.5 million Catholics in 1,320 parishes.
All dioceses plan to publish their lists by Jan. 31, 2019 and they will be updated as new information becomes available.
