Dutch bishops say sorry for sexual abuse
Published on:Monday, December 19, 2011 - 11:53
On Sunday, priests in many Dutch Roman Catholic churches read out a letter written by bishops in response to a scathing report on child sex abuse at Catholic institutions.
The report, issued on Friday, concluded that child sex abuse by Dutch Roman Catholic priests had been far more extensive than previously thought and that the Church authorities knew it was taking place but failed to act appropriately and provide care for the victims.
