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
