Atlanta Archbishop Wilton Gregory: U.S. Catholic bishops "can never say that we are sorry enough for the share that we have had in this tragedy of broken fidelity and trust" — clergy sex abuse crisis.
The 14th annual report on diocesan compliance with the U.S. Catholic Church's "Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People" shows church leaders have taken steps to help many find healing.
Between July 2013 and June 2014, the church spent $119 million on costs related to sex abuse allegations and $31 million on protective efforts, the report also shows.
Catholics must "hold each other accountable for any actions or decisions," one speaker at the USCCB meeting said, but there was no discussion on who would look for that accountability.
