Church officials say Cardinal George will not resign as group demands

Catholic News Service

CHICAGO (CNS) -- Cardinal Francis E. George did not respond publicly to calls for his resignation by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, but officials of the Archdiocese of Chicago said the cardinal has no intention of leaving his post in the wake of a much-publicized case of sexual abuse charges made against one of his priests. The archdiocese and the state Department of Children and Family Services agreed on several new protocols to strengthen the archdiocese's already revamped policies in a recent series of meetings.
