Bishop of Scranton Responds to Grand Jury Report
SCRANTON, Pa. -- At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, the Bishop of Scranton called the attorney general's report horrific, heartbreaking, and demoralizing. In the Diocese of Scranton, 59 priests were mentioned in the report. The diocese listed the priests on its website as well. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said the more than 800-page grand jury report details decades of child sex abuse committed by more than 300 priests in six dioceses in Pennsylvania.
