On behalf of the Church, I apologize for the grave offenses committed against the vulnerable by those who were ordained to serve our communities. We are grateful to survivors who have come forward already and encourage those who have not yet come forward to do so.
– Bishop John M. LeVoir
The sexual abuse of minors by priests is a tragedy that has shattered lives locally and around the world.
The Diocese of New Ulm is committed to preventing abuse, immediately reporting any allegation of sexual abuse by a priest to law enforcement, and helping those harmed by abuse in their journey toward healing.
The disclosure of the names of 16 men with credible accusations against them jointly announced late last month by the diocese and the law firm of Jeff Anderson & Associates is being made as part of the healing process.
