As Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk, we are saddened and outraged by the harm done to anyone, especially children, abused by Catholic clergy, brothers or sisters. We grieve with the victims and their families and we listen and respond compassionately to them. We abhor the behaviors of perpetrators and we desire to see them prevented from doing further harm. We pledge to respect appropriate confidentiality while dealing with these matters openly and honestly. We stand in solidarity with those who have been falsely accused and support their search for truth and justice.
