CWN Editor's Note: In newly released depositions, Bishop Michael Hoeppner of Crookston, Minnesota, acknowledges that he did not respond appropriately to sex-abuse charges brought against a priest of his diocese in 2011. Bishop Hoeppner’s handling of abuse complaints has been the subject of a Vatican-ordered investigation by Archbishop Bernard Hebda. That investigation is now complete, and a report has been sent to the Vatican.
