Bishop Provost released the following statement on October 17, 2018:

“The concern of the Diocese of Lake Charles has always been and continues to be the victims of sexual abuse. On the subject of issuing a list of priests credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors, this list requires three conditions. First, the privacy and identities of the victims must be protected so that even the possibility of additional harm and injury is eliminated. Second, the integrity and thoroughness of the process must be assured. Third, the Diocese must include expert collaborators in the process. Out of respect for the victims, the process will not be rushed.”
