ST. FRANCIS ó In an e-mailed letter July 9, Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan encouraged superiors of religious orders of men to make public the names of members of their communities who have substantiated allegations of abuse against children. On the same day, the Milwaukee Archdiocese made public a list of 43 names of diocesan priests, living and deceased, with substantiated allegations of abuse.

But according to a national spokesman for major superiors of men, itís unlikely any religious orders of men will follow suit and release names of men in their communities with substantiated allegations of abuse.

What are religious orders?
