Archbishop Jose Gomez, who has led the archdiocese since 2011, said that in 2005, the archdiocese learned of an allegation against Bishop Salazar, with the alleged abuse taking place in the 1990s; the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith then “imposed certain precautionary measures.” Archbishop Gomez said that he subsequently received permission from the Holy See to submit the matter to the archdiocesan review board, which found the allegation credible. The Pope has accepted Bishop Salazar’s resignation.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
