Priest List-Winona



The Catholic Diocese of Winona has released a list of 14 priests with credible accusations of sexually abusing minors.
            
The list includes the names of nine priests who are deceased and four others who are still alive but have been permanently removed from the ministry.

Those 13 were credibly accused prior to 2004.

One name was disclosed of a priest who has been accused after 2004 and that is Leo Charles Koppala.

Twin Cities Attorney Jeff Anderson, who has been representing many of the alleged victims, said, in a press release,  the priests on the list worked in 45 parishes and 44 cities across southern Minnesota...some in Winona.

In a statement....Bishop John Quinn said the Diocese of Winona is committed to the protection of young people and adherence to the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

The Diocese encourages anyone who has been sexually abused to immediately report the abuse to law enforcement or the proper authorities......
