Archbishop's Statement On Kuhn

"Thomas Kuhn, a priest on administrative leave from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, toay was sentenced in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on charges of public indecency and providing alcohol to minors.

Although this is another difficult day for our local Church, I pray that this sentence by the court will lead to a measure of closure and ultimately healing for the young people involved and their families and friends.

I deeply regret the behavior that led to Thomas Kuhn's conviction and sentencing. I apologize for any harm that he has done to victims, to their families and friends, and to members of the Church as a whole.

The criminal investigation of THomas Kuhn by Montgomery County begain in May 2002. It has taken some time. The canonical process that is continuing will also take time. The Archdiocese will do everything possible to move this process forward while safeguarding the rights of all parties.

I urge anyone who was abused as a child by a priest or any other representative of the Archdiocese or knows someone who was, to report the abuse immediately to the secular legal authorities and to the Chancellor of the Archdiocese, Father Joseph Binzer at 513-421-3131."

Most Rv. Daniel E. Pilarczyk, Archbishop of Cincinnati.
