Following archdiocese charges, Twin Cities Catholics hope for change

Some Catholic faithful in the Twin Cities have expressed hope that criminal charges filed last week against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will result in major changes in the way the church deals with allegations of sexual abuse.

Others say the charges would not have been necessary had church officials handled abuse allegations properly.

The archdiocese is facing six gross misdemeanor counts for allegedly failing to protect children abused by former priestCurtis Wehmeyer, who’s serving a five-year prison sentence.

Archdiocese officials said Friday that they’re continuing to cooperate with the investigation.
