New Initiative from Mutual Support Working Group


What to do when yourself or another priest is accused of sexual abuse? Abuse is a terrible sin. It is horrifying to the victims, to bishops, to fellow priests and to the alleged perpetrator.  

This past year the AUSCP Mutual Support Committee has put together a list of things an accused priest can do when accused. And a list of things that priest friends can do when a brother priest is accused.  

After consultation with lawyers, diocesan officials and canon lawyers, the committee has put together the document “Guidelines in Response to Accusations”.
