By Mark Coleridge

Archbishop Philip Wilson has today decided to stand down as Archbishop of Adelaide, following yesterdayís verdict in a New South Wales court. We, his brother bishops, believe Archbishop Wilsonís decision, though difficult, was appropriate under the circumstances.
Our prayers are with all those who have felt the impact of this long legal process, including the survivors who shared their stories, as well as with the Archdiocese of Adelaide and with Archbishop Wilson himself.
