The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis filed its Plan for Reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on May 26th. It was a major step in the Archdiocese’s commitment to protect children, establish a counseling fund for victims, and create a trust for those who have been harmed by people in the Church. Below are links to a letter from the Archbishop regarding the Plan filing and a two-page Q & A that should be helpful in explaining why the Archdiocese filed Chapter 11 in January of 2015, where the process is now, and what happens going forward. It also addresses recent allegations that the Archdiocese failed to disclose all of its assets. Please continue to pray for all of those who have been harmed by the Church over the years and for their families.
