In a letter to the faithful of the Diocese of Sacramento that will be distributed in parishes on the weekend of Oct. 20-21, Bishop Jaime Soto announced that he will release to the public and publish on the diocesan website the names of all priests in the diocese who have been credibly accused of abusing children and young people. He will do so with the guidance of a consulting firm known for its expertise in this work.
Following is the full text of Bishop Soto's letter.
