Bishop Jones has also encouraged victims of abuse to report what happened to them, if they had not already done so.

"If you have suffered abuse from a priest or any church personnel and have not come forward with your story, I urge you to do so now," he said.

"We know that apologies must sound hollow for people who are suffering but this apology is made with the utmost sincerity," Bishop Jones said.
