APPEAL DECISION

Statement from the Administrator Delegate of the Adelaide Archdiocese, Father Philip Marshall:

We note the outcome of the judgement handed down today by Judge Roy Ellis in the Newcastle District Court and welcome the conclusion of a process that has been long and painful for all concerned.  

We now need to consider the ramifications of this outcome.

The survivors of child sexual abuse and their families are in our thoughts and prayers, and the Archdiocese remains committed to providing the safest possible environments for children and vulnerable people in our care.
