New Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski Has the Opportunity to Make an Immediate Impact
Five Catholic archdioceses around the country have had a recent change in leadership with the installation of a new archbishop, including Mitchell Rozanski in St. Louis.
With this promotion, Archbishop Rozanski now has more responsibility for the safety of children and the vulnerable than ever. It is crucial that within his first few official weeks in this new post that he takes tangible steps to prevent abuse.
First, the new archbishop should read every file of every person accused of abuse in his archdiocese and ensure sure that each case is being or was handled properly. He should also turn over every single one of those files to local police and prosecutors to let properly trained experts in law enforcement determine if there are any crimes that can be charged.
