The Diocese of Oakland announced Friday that it needs more time before releasing the names of priests credibly accused of sexual abuse.
On Oct. 8 the diocese pledged to publish the names within 45 days, but now says the publication won’t be until after Jan. 1 2019.
“We have decided it is essential we contact survivors in advance of a public announcement, and this will require a sensitivity to their unique situations,” the diocese said in a statement. “Secondly, it is important we spend more time verifying the information we have on priests from religious orders and from other dioceses who served in the Oakland Diocese.”
