Sorry

Scottish Bishop Apologizes for Abuse

The Catholic Church is slowly righting wrongs committed by its clerics over the years. The Bishop of Aberdeen, one of Scotland's highest-ranking prelates, is set to apologize to parishioners for three decades of abuse at a now-closed Catholic boarding school. His actions come after a BBC investigation into allegations against the school aired on Monday. The abuse, which included both violent actions and sexual assault, was allegedly committed by seven Benedictine monks at the school, and was reportedly covered up by two different headmasters. The school was reportedly a "dumping ground" for clergy who had abused before. The Benedictine order has already apologized.
