FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 31, 2019
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn has just concluded an Apostolic Visitation of the Diocese of Buffalo.
The Bishop made three trips; a total of seven days. He met with and interviewed close to 80 individuals; both clergy and laypeople, including members of the Presbyteral Council, Diocesan Consultors, Diocesan Finance Council, Diocesan Pastoral Council, Territorial Vicars, and Senior Priests. He also spoke with representatives of outside groups such as the Movement to Restore Trust, college presidents, and other interested parties.
This Apostolic Visitation was requested by the Holy See earlier this month.
Now that Bishop DiMarzio has finished his interviews, he will compile the information and prepare a report which will be submitted to the Holy See.
No additional information will be shared beyond this statement at this time.
