Statement of Archbishop Thompson on the Release of the Holy See’s McCarrick Report

In response to the Holy See’s publication of its report on former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop Charles C. Thompson, Archbishop of Indianapolis, issued the following statement:

“The information provided in the Holy See’s report on Mr. Theodore McCarrick, former Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, is quite disconcerting to all. There is no place in the Church for either abuse, especially when victims include children and vulnerable persons, or its coverup.  Our hearts go out to victims of abuse and their families.  In the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, we are deeply committed to the protection of those entrusted to our care, particularly caring for children, young people, the elderly and the vulnerable.”
