Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser and Archbishop Samuel Aquila, on behalf of the Bishops of all three Dioceses of the Catholic Church in Colorado, today announced joint initiatives intended to support and comfort survivors of the sexual abuse of minors by Catholic priests.

  • An independent reviewer will examine the records and policies of the three Dioceses about the sexual abuse of minors and draft a public report.
  • Additionally, the three Dioceses will fund an independent, voluntary program that will compensate victims of abuse, regardless of when the abuse occurred. 
  • A separate victims’ support service will be created to assist victims/survivors with the reparations program and connect them with resources for future care

Reporting

Attorney General Phil Weiser has launched an online reporting system for the sexual abuse of minors, where victims and others can provide information as part of the Attorney General’s ongoing efforts to investigate and protect Coloradans from abuse.

The Attorney General encourages anyone impacted by abuse from anyone at a nonprofit organization, including clergy, counselors or others in a position of trust, to submit a report. Information gathered from the public will be helpful to understand the issues affecting Coloradans and contribute to potential investigations.

When appropriate, reports will also be shared with District Attorneys throughout the state to investigate and, if warranted, prosecute any individuals who have committed criminal activities. Reports of abuse, when related to the investigation of Bob Troyer, will also be shared with him.
