Royal Commission

Bishop Michael McKenna has welcomed the announcement of a Royal Commission into the sexual abuse of minors in Australian institutions. Along with his fellow bishops, he has promised his cooperation in the work of the Commission.

Bishop McKenna hopes that those who have suffered will be treated with respect and compassion and that the Commission will see itself at the service of truth and justice.
