Cardinal McCarrick in 2013, Rome - Boston Catholic

US: Bishop of Salina, KS, Issues Statement on McCarrick

Former Cardinal Lives at St. Fidelis Friary in Victoria, KS

Last summer, when Pope Francis asked that McCarrick live a life of prayer and penance until a thorough investigation of allegations against him took place, he took residence at St. Fidelis Friary in Victoria, Kansas,  beginning on September 28, 2018. McCarrick will continue to reside at the St. Fidelis Friary in Victoria until a decision of permanent residence is finalized, the diocese said February 16, 2019.

Bishop Gerald L. Vincke, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Salina, said he hopes that this decision may help bring healing to all affected by sexual abuse and those hurt by this scandal.

He also expresses his gratitude to the Capuchins at St. Fidelis Friary for their charity and compassion shown to all who seek refuge in the Church, as well as the remarkable people of Victoria for their mercy in this difficult situation.
