Reorganization Plan Filing
The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis filed its Plan for Reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy Court just over a week ago. It is a major step in the Archdiocese’s commitment to protect children, establish a counseling fund for victims, and create a trust for those who have been harmed by people in the Church.
See the links below for a letter from the Archbishop regarding the Plan filing and a Q&A document that should be helpful in explaining why the Archdiocese filed Chapter 11 in January of 2015, where the process is now, and what happens going forward. It also addresses recent allegations that the Archdiocese failed to disclose all of its assets. Please continue to pray for all of those who have been harmed by the Church over the years and for their families.
There is hope.
The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis partners with Canvas Health, an independent and professional local care provider to help you or anyone who has been abused or victimized by someone representing the Catholic Church. Referrals and financial support for counseling, individual or group therapy, and spiritual advising or direction area offered to assist in the healing process. Confidential, compassionate assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 651-291-4497 or click below for more info:
