Statement from Bishop Edward J. Burns Diocese of Dallas on Jesuit announcement

Publish Date: December 7, 2018

I commend the Jesuits and other religious orders who, together with bishops in the United States, are working for truth and transparency in order to keep children and youth safe.  As announced and reported in October,  the Diocese of Dallas will join the other Catholic dioceses around the state of Texas in releasing a list on January 31, 2019, of all priests credibly accused of the sexual abuse of a minor since 1950.  I continue to pray for all victims and their loved ones in the Diocese of Dallas and around the world.
