important message regarding the archdiocesan Claim filing deadline

As a part of the diocesan filing of bankruptcy, the judge has ordered that anyone who has a claim – whether a claim related to past sexual abuse or a claim of any kind – must file that claim by August 3 of this year. For more details regarding the filing of claims please see the following links:

We continue to take the safety of our children and adults very, very seriously. At the parish level, we continue to carefully screen all employees and volunteers who have contact with children or vulnerable adults. If you or
someone you know has been sexually abused, your first call should be to law enforcement. If a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church has abused someone, we are sorry, and we are committed to listening to you, addressing your needs and concerns, and doing all we can to prevent any more harm. The archdiocese has partnered with Canvas Health, an independent and professional local care provider, to offer confidential, compassionate assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at (651) 291-4497. For further help please visit the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis.
