CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Michael Hoeppner of Crookston, Minnesota, resigned in April, at the request of Pope Francis, after a Vatican investigation into charges that he had covered up sex-abuse complaints.

“The Diocese of Crookston has been through difficulties and struggles,” Bishop Andrew Cozzens said at his December 6 installation Mass. “It doesn’t help to pretend these have not happened.”
