(KUTV) In the past, the Catholic Church has faced some controversy, including news about some priests involved in sexual abuse of children.

“The Church has not been a perfect church,” said Bishop Oscar Solis. “It is perfect because God is there, but the administration of the church is run by human persons–flawed, weak, broken. So it’s expected.”

Solis believes that those times are times the Church and its leaders need to take a moment to self-evaluate what they might be doing wrong so they can set things right.

“It makes our church better, we serve our community better, by seeing to it that the people we serve are in a safer place, in a safe environment, where they’re respected,” he said.

“It’s a challenge for us. It’s a sad moment in our life, in our history, and we hope and we wish that it didn’t happen.”
