Group Of Catholics Rallying For New Leadership

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — A group of Catholics are planning to gather in front of the Cathedral of St. Paul on Saturday to urge Archbishop John Nienstedt to resign.

Catholic Coalition for Church Reform said the archbishop is not showing leadership for a healthy Christian church.

They’re upset about several cases that have been filed in recent weeks alleging sexual abuse by Twin Cities Catholic clergy members, and the potential cover-up by the church.

The archbishop wrote a letter acknowledging serious mistakes have been made in the past, but has shown no signs that he would step down.
