Minn. archdiocese releases costs of clergy abuse

February 13, 2014
Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis says it has paid more than $8.8 million in the past 10 years over clergy sexual abuse and other misconduct by priests.

In its annual financial report Thursday, the archdiocese says about $3.2 million went for room, board and living expenses for priests and ex-priests accused of sexual abuse or other misconduct.

The report also says about $2.5 million went to settlements for victims, and nearly $2.3 million paid for counseling and other support services for victims.

Those totals don't include insurance payments.

The report says the ?nancial condition of the archdiocese is solid even though it finished its 2013 fiscal year with a deficit of nearly $3.9 million because it set aside reserves to cover potential liability from lawsuits.
