MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After a year filled with scrutiny and scandal, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis says cuts are coming.

The archdiocese will cut more than $5 million, or about 20 percent from its budget.

That will include job layoffs, starting this month.

Church officials say their current operational budget wasn’t sustainable on top of the legal fees surrounding dozens of allegations of child abuse by clergy members.

The archdiocese says individual parishes and schools will not be affected.
