Diocese of Arlington Releases Names of Priests Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor

Diocese of Arlington Releases Names of Priests Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor

With the hope that it may further the healing process for victims and survivors of clergy sexual abuse, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, has directed that a list of priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor be released to the faithful of the Diocese. The list is being published after a full review of all clergy files by experienced and independent examiners (former FBI personnel) who were given full access to all information and files from the history of the Diocese of Arlington since its founding in 1974.
The complete list, as well as a letter from Bishop Burbidge, can be found on the Diocese of Arlington website: ArlingtonDiocese.org/ClergyAbuseList
The Diocese has also updated a resource that addresses many of the frequently asked questions we have received over the last several months. That resource can be found here: ArlingtonDiocese.org/ChildProtection

2019 Bishop’s Lenten Appeal

A Message From Bishop Burbidge on the Bishop’s Lenten Appeal

A Message From Bishop Burbidge on the Bishop’s Lenten Appeal

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The annual Bishop’s Lenten Appeal (BLA) supports the work of our Diocese through programs and ministries that provide spiritual, charitable and educational assistance to men, women and children in our parishes.  The theme for the 2019 Bishop’s Lenten Appeal is “Together in the Light of Christ.”  Christ our Light has conquered the darkness and we are called to share His light with all whom we encounter.

As we participate in the BLA, each of us can become a light of hope to the hopeless, a gleam of faith to the faithless, and a special instrument of God’s love and mercy for which so many hunger.  Please consider pledging your support to the 2019 Bishop’s Lenten Appeal and help keep Christ’s light shining brightly within our Diocese.

Please be assured of my gratitude and continued prayers. May Almighty God bless and protect you always.

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge

Bishop of Arlington
