Review Board

The Diocesan Review Board was established to assist the Bishop in accordance with Church law, the USCCB’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and the Essential Norms, and locally established church policies. The board operates as a confidential consultative body that advises the Bishop in the assessment of complaints related to clergy sexual abuse of minors and in his determination of the suitability of an accused cleric for ministry. The Review Board may offer advice on all aspects of these cases, whether retrospectively or prospectively.
