Statement Regarding Ramsey County Court Decision

The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis looks forward to working with the Court, the opposing parties and the special master in complying with today’s ruling by Ramsey County District Court Judge John Van de North in the Doe 1 case. Today’s ruling is consistent with the rulings made from the bench during the February 11th court hearing.

Our goals, and the basis for every action and decision we are making, remain the protection of children, the healing of victims, and the restoration of trust of the faithful and our clergy who are serving our communities nobly and with honor.
