January 10, 2003

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A task force evaluating the sexual misconduct policy of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester meets for its final session Friday.

Bishop John B. McCormack directed the task force to compare the diocese's existing sexual misconduct policy with the one adopted by the nation's bishops and recommend changes.

Former House Speaker Donna Sytek, the task force chairwoman, said the 12-member group decided to draft its own policy to present to the bishop. The policy is expected to be presented to the bishop by next week.
