Diocese committed to stopping abuse, Zubik says


By Nathan Phelps

The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay is in full compliance with the U.S. Bishops’ national standards for preventing sexual abuse, but Bishop David Zubik said the diocese will continue to make strides in preventing abuse.

“We are very, very, very serious about taking a look at the incidents of the past to make sure we continue to address the situation in the present so they don’t occur in the future,” Zubik said. “We have done an immense amount of work … to make sure that we’re creating safe environments for young people and making sure this tragedy never happens again.”

This is the second year audits have been carried out nationally and the second year the diocese has been compliant.
