The Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield is continuing its efforts to become more transparent in regards to clergy sexual abuse. Bishop Mitchell Rozanski is scheduled to hold a news conference on the subject Tuesday afternoon.

The bishop’s news conference will discuss his formal introduction of the new “Safe Environment and Victim Assistance Office.” According to Diocesan spokesperson Mark Dupont, the announcement comes just days before Rozanski is set to meet with a man who has accused the late Bishop Christopher Weldon of sexual abuse.
