New sexual-abuse audits
The third annual national audit results will be released tomorrow at noon (Eastern) on the USCCB Web site. Two other reports will be issued:
Also to be released as part of the Charter implementation report is the annual survey by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), Georgetown University, with new data on allegations and costs related to the sex abuse crisis; and a Supplemental Data Analysis done by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York, based on the data gathered for its study of the “Nature and Scope of the Sexual Abuse of Minors by Catholic Clergy 1950-2002,” released in 2004.
It will be interesting to see if the Chicago situation will be accounted for. Happy Lent.
