WCPO - Corrections of Errors

December 12, 2019

Dear Parishioners,

Last month WCPO I-Team aired a series of reports on the handing of clergy abuse by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati (AoC) and the Diocese of Covington. There were a number of errors in the report concerning the AoC’s handing of issues. Because the handing of abuse cases by clergy and church personnel must be taken seriously, and because people are shaken in their faith by what has happened, and in the name of fairness, I feel it is important to clarify inaccuracies and falsities in their report.  The Archdiocese has issued the following to correct the report. (I could not find these corrections on the WCPO website.)  I urge you to hand this information on to others who are affected by the report. I in no way condone the mishandling of abuse issues but also feel that when the church is inaccurately or false accused of a matter, it needs to be corrected.

May the Lord bring healing and peace to all who affected by the abuse of ministers or anyone.



Fr. Jeff Kemper
