Archdiocese of Adelaide

I have taken the opportunity overnight to consider His Honourís reasons.
I am still considering those reasons together with my legal advisors. While I do so, it is appropriate that, in the light of some of his Honourís findings, I stand aside from my duties as Archbishop.
I am now putting in place the necessary administrative arrangements to ensure that the affairs of the Archdiocese are managed responsibly. I therefore intend to step aside as of Friday this week once those arrangements are in place.
