Church Discloses Names Of 5 More Accused Of Abuse
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has added five names to its list of priests and religious brothers with substantiated claims of abuse against them.
The names include three priests and two brothers who served in the archdiocese. All are deceased. In all cases, the abuse happened over 25 years ago.
The archdiocese says it’s releasing the names as part of its ongoing review of clergy personnel files. Kinsale Management Consulting has reviewed 3,333 personnel files for all men who served in ministry in the archdiocese from 1970 to now. Kinsale finished its review in April.
The archdiocese says it shared information from the review with law enforcement, and more disclosures will be made if more information is found.
