Sexual Abuse Crisis Information Page
This webpage has been created, at the direction of Bishop Malone, in response to the sexual abuse crisis of minors and adults in the Diocese of Buffalo. We are in the process of building this site, but wanted to, in the meantime, have all related information in one place for you. The material and information here will be continuously updated to provide transparency, accountability and action. The most essential part of our response is a deepened commitment to care for the victims and help them heal of these crimes committed by representatives of the Church.
