Dublin archdiocese seeks more parish funds to ease financial crisis
CWN - September 22, 2011
The Archdiocese of Dublin is seeking new funds from parishes to help meet the costs of sex-abuse settlements, the Irish Catholic reports.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has said that the funds from parishes are being used for ordinary archdiocesan operating expenses, not directly targeted for abuse payments. But he conceded that the parish funds could be used for those settlements.
