The Diocese of Green Bay announced today it has hired independent investigative firm Defenbaugh & Associates, Inc. from Kaufman, Texas, to conduct an outside review of the files of all Priests and Deacons who have served in the diocese.

This announcement comes after  Bishop Robert Morneau requested to withdraw from all public ministry saying he regrets not reporting abuse of a minor by a priest in 1979.

When completed, the Diocese of Green Bay says the findings will be reported to the Diocesan Independent Review Board and the Chancellor.
