Bishop Burns Releases List


The Bishop of Dallas, Most Reverend Edward J. Burns, has released a list with the “names of those priests who have been the subject of a credible allegation of sexual abuse of a minor in the Diocese during the period from 1950 to the present”, his letter stated.

Bishop Burns also acknowledged that there could be more unknown victims and encouraged them to come forward and report abuse to law enforcement, or by calling the Texas Abuse Hotline at 800-252-5400 and contacting Victims Assistance Coordinator, Barbara Landregan, 214-379-2812.

But the painful yet necessary process that began in 2002 in this Diocese has also led to much-needed reforms that we continue to rigorously implement today.  Going forward, we must remain vigilant.

Most Reverend Edward J. Burns
