CWN Editor's Note: “To date, the Diocese has been named in more than 400 CVA [Child Victims Act] lawsuits which were filed between Aug. 15, 2019, and Aug. 14, 2021,” Bishop Edward Scharfenberger said in a letter to the faithful. “I understand this filing causes uncertainty, but as a Church and a community of faith, we must recognize that Victim/Survivors are our sons and daughters, and our brothers and sisters, and all of us, without exception, must work together to find ways to help them.”
