Regarding Not Guilty Verdict for Father Robert Cedolia

Diocese of Pittsburgh [Pittsburgh PA]

November 14, 2022

By Bishop David Zubik

The not guilty verdict reached in criminal court for Father Robert Cedolia represents the conclusion of a nearly four-year period since an allegation of sexual abuse of a minor was filed against him. Father Cedolia was in active ministry for 41 years. He has maintained his innocence throughout these proceedings. The civil court ruling is consistent with the finding of the diocesan Independent Review Board, which found no merit in the claim. May our words, our deeds, and our prayers, always reflect the healing love of Jesus.
