A message from Father Jack about today’s Report from the Diocese of Tulsa

From Father Jack Gleason, Pastor:

This afternoon, Bishop Konderla released a report on clerics credibly accused of the sexual abuse of minors in the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma. (https://ec-prod-sites.s3.amazonaws.com/2682/documents/2019/10/Report%20Credible%20Allegations%2010-2-2019-2.pdf)

All 544 files of priests and deacons were given to GableGotwals for their review. The names of any ordained clerics, priests or deacons, who have been credibly accused have been released. The intent is to be transparent with names so that anyone who has been abused might find the courage to bring this to light and begin the healing process.

If you know of anyone who has been abused, please report it to the proper authority for action. The starting point is to contact the DHS Statewide Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-522-3511 and call local law enforcement.

If you have been abused by someone representing the Church, we will listen to your needs and support you. We will help you make a formal complaint. Please call the Pastoral Response Hotline at 918-307-4970. You will be greeted by a voicemail by which you may leave a message.

In Christ,

Father Jack Gleason
Pastor
