Catholic Archdiocese Sells Central Offices to Pay for Lawsuits

July 8, 2006

Milwaukee, WI — The Catholic archdiocese in Milwaukee will sell its central offices to pay for lawsuits alleging clergy sexual abuse.

The archdiocese is looking for a professional broker to sell its "Cousins center" in suburban St. Francis. Staff members who work there would move to a nearby seminary.

Ten people in California have filed suits against the Milwaukee Archdiocese alleging two priests who molested children there were knowingly sent to California where they molested again. The suits are expected to go to trial in November.
