SANTA ROSA (KPIX) -- The Catholic Diocese of Santa Rosa on Saturday released its list of clergy members with credible allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse.
There is a total of 39 names on the list; 17 of those named have no known allegations against them during the time of their service or presence in the Diocese of Santa Rosa.
Bishop Robert F. Vasa said in a statement accompanying the list " I want, first of all, to express my sincere sorrow that so many have been subjected to the evil actions of priests and bishops ... It is my deepest prayer and hope that this release of names in a consolidated fashion says to any of you who are victims, we have heard you, we believe you, we affirm you in your trauma and we want to help with a healing process."
