Bishop Richard Malone said Wednesday he wanted to shed light on the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo’s decision to release a list of more than 40 priests accused of sexual assault.
“My job is to bring things out of the darkness and into the light,” said Malone. “Primarily so we can offer healing, mercy and justice to victims, and, in the process, heal the church because something like this obviously mars the integrity of the church.”
Another victim, Gary Astridge of Tonawanda, came forward Wednesday to share the pain he’s dealt with for years, the result of alleged sexual abuse by a priest in the Catholic Church.
