"We are committed to cooperating with investigators and doing all we can to secure justice for those who were betrayed and hurt."

The Diocese of Sacramento today expanded its list of clergy members credibly accused of child sex abuse, adding the name of a priest who served in Sacramento and Roseville between 1995 and 2005.

Roberto Jaramillo, 70, has been accused of the repeated sexual abuse and rape of a girl between 1996 and 1999. Jaramillo left the Diocese of Sacramento in 2005 and served in the Archdiocese of Atlanta before returning to his home diocese in Colombia in 2008.

Jaramillo is the subject of a felony arrest warrant for his crimes. The Diocese is cooperating with investigators and asks anyone with information about Jaramillo – in particular, with information related to possible additional victims – to contact Detective Matthew Wollman of the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 808-1223.

This was a grace-filled time to listen to a wide range of experiences.

Dear Friends in Christ:

Last October, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, asked bishops around the world to conduct listening sessions in preparation for the next Synod of Bishops in 2023. As I shared in a previous message, the root meaning of the word “synod” connotes journeying together. A synod is a time for consulting, listening, and learning. The Holy Father has asked us to be more intentional about how we listen and learn from one another.

Este fue un momento lleno de gracia para escuchar una amplia gama de experiencias.

Estimados Amigos en Cristo:

El octubre pasado, el Santo Padre, el Papa Francisco, pidió a los obispos de todo el mundo que realizaran sesiones de escucha en preparación para el próximo Sínodo de los Obispos en 2023. Como compartí en un mensaje anterior, el significado raíz de la palabra “sínodo” connota caminar juntos. Un sínodo es un tiempo para consultar, escuchar y aprender. El Santo Padre nos ha pedido que seamos más intencionales acerca de cómo escuchamos y aprendemos unos de otros.
