Pope Francis has called together the presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world to discuss the clerical sexual abuse scandal and our global response as a Catholic Church. This meeting is set for Feb. 21 – 24 at the Vatican.

In a continued effort to be as transparent as possible, Bishop Walkowiak has created a video message to be shared with parishioners ahead of the meeting. His last update to parishioners followed the USCCB General Assembly meeting in November. The video (approximately 8 and a half minutes long) addresses the meeting and other questions regarding this scandal.
