Rhoades To Release Names Of Credibly Accused Priests In Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese
Bishop Kevin Rhoades is expected to release the names of priests and deacons within the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse tomorrow via the diocesan website.
Rhoades promised to release names last month during a press conference in Fort Way ne, days after a Pennsylvania grand jury report detailed decades of child abuse within the Roman Catholic Church. Rhodes served in Harrisburg before Indiana.
Bishop Rhoades was cleared last Thursday of allegations of misconduct in Pennsylvania. The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend said in a statement last week, “While it’s important that allegations be brought forward, it’s equally important for due process to take place.”
