Warning: This story discusses sexual abuse.

A man who was abused at a Catholic school in Whanganui wants a written apology and acknowledgment of the issue of abuse within the Catholic Church, after telling the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care he was sexually assaulted at a Whanganui school.

The man, who gave evidence under the pseudonym Mr G, attended Marist Brothers’ School in Whanganui from the age of 7 to 12.

The inquiry, in Auckland, is hearing from survivors of historical abuse in faith-based care and the redress processes that followed.
