The Diocese of Lansing fully cooperated in the execution of a search warrant served on Wednesday, October 3, related to the current investigation by the office of the Michigan Attorney General.
As was stated when this investigation was announced last month “The Diocese of Lansing welcomes a review of our handling of abuse cases by Michigan’s Attorney General. We are confident in our processes. We have and will continue to reach out to law enforcement with these matters.”
We will continue to assist in the Attorney General’s investigation in any manner they request.
We know of no one active in ministry in our diocese who has abused a child.
If anyone has reason to suspect physical, sexual or emotional abuse of any person of any age, please contact Protective Services or the police, as appropriate.
