Spokane Catholic Diocese Announces Properties To Be Sold


The Spokane Catholic Diocese is prepared to sell its downtown headquarters office building and Bishop William Skylstad's home to settle plaintiffs claims of sexual abuse by priests.

These disclosures were included in a plan filed in United States bankruptcy court, but nothing was mentioned about parish churches, schools, and other parish property.

The announcement brought some relief to parents whose children attend Catholic schools.
