How is the Catholic Church held responsible?
A common question we get is, “How is the church responsible for those actions of the priest who may have acted and perpetrated sexual abuse while in their positions?” The answer is the church may be found to have covered up certain acts including shifting priests from location to location, as far as their assignments go, to prevent accountability. The church may also have covered up evidence or failed to take affirmative action even after they knew or should have known that these things may have been occurring.
