In this video, Bishop Bill Wright of Maitland-Newcastle responds to the Special Commission of Inquiry Concerning the Investigation of Certain Child Sexual Abuse Allegations in the Hunter Region.
'I know that this report will make very difficult reading for many people. It will evoke strong feelings. Feelings of anger, hurt, sadness, frustration and betrayal. We are not the only Church to have had abusive priests. Nor are we the only institution that has failed to protect children. However none of that diminishes the historic realities that we as a diocese have to deal with.' - Bishop Bill Wright.
