Archbishop Schnurr Comment on the handling of this matter: 

“We obviously made serious mistakes in our handling of this matter, for which we are very sorry. We are working on personnel and procedural changes to be announced in the very near future to ensure that every member of the Priest Personnel Board has complete insight into a priest’s background and profile before an assignment is made.”
