Twelve professors at the St. Paul, Minn., university say "the pastoral state of the archdiocese is not sustainable."
St. Paul-Minneapolis archdiocese
Five female professors at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, Minn., say it’s time for new leadership in the St. Paul-Minneapolis archdiocese, the latest to repeat a refrain already echoed by priests, donors, news publications and Catholics in the pews.
“For genuine healing to occur, we believe it is necessary to have new leadership at the archdiocesan level, leadership that includes individuals who are neither perpetrators nor enablers of abuse,” they said in a letter shared with several media outlets, including NCR.
Among the records: Abuse-related expenses cost the archdiocese more than $400,000 in the last two years and more than $6 million in the last decade.
