Complete List of Bishop Statements on McCarrick Scandal

The Catholic Women’s Forum shares the shock and outrage felt by many at the recent allegations of sexual abuse by Archbishop (formerly Cardinal) McCarrick, and at the appalling failure of Church authorities to address reports of McCarrick’s sexual misconduct and abuse of seminarians. CWF believes that the path forward requires action by the US Bishops, in collaboration with the laity, to ensure not only the bishops’ accountability but also a profound spiritual reform, leading to integrity, healing, and hope in Jesus Christ.

Catholics who are following the McCarrick scandal and the Church’s response will find below an up-to-date list of statements from US bishops and Church leaders.
