Ireland: Congregations’ child abuse apologies lack credibility (Opinion)
Irish Times – April 05, 2017
It is practice when reviews of child protection standards are published by the Catholic Church’s National Board for Safeguarding Children that these are followed by many apologies from the institutions concerned. These follow a usual formula welcoming the review, apologising for what was uncovered, and assurances that such will never, ever happen again. Yesterday, the De La Salle Brothers, the Norbertines, the Nazareth Sisters and the Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd congregations followed suit.
