GREEN BAY — According to an audit, the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay is in full compliance with the U.S. Bishops’ national standards for preventing sexual abuse.

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.”
