In a statement regarding the clergy sexual abuse crisis, Bishop Matano called the revelations of ex-Cardinal McCarrick’s actions “very disturbing and tragic.” Matano wrote that he will “continue to address the tragic subject of the sexual abuse of minors” which will continue with his “full cooperation with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.” However, at no point did Matano call for an investigation into Vigano’s testimony and the abuse of power by members of the Church hierarchy.
