Rigali Announces Changes After Church Sex Abuse Charges

The local Catholic cardinal names people to help with the "problem"

Among the new positions intended to help sort everything out after the release yesterday of a grand jury report detailing sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia? As Newsworks explains, a psychologist “meant to encourage priests’ compliance in such matters” and a woman to help Rigali sort through the report. Her name — wait for it — is Mary Achilles. Irony, anyone? According to this Archdiocese of Philadelphia press release she’s been down this road with the church before — in January 2006.
