Public Statement on the verdict in the case of Cardinal Pell

Like many Australians, I am shocked and appalled by this verdict. I am unable to comment on the specifics of the case as the legal process must continue to take its course.  

Any abuse of a child is abhorrent and must always be condemned whenever and wherever it occurs.  Churches should be at the forefront of protecting children and providing a safe and loving environment. 

The Anglican Church in Sydney is committed to zero tolerance of child abuse and we are grateful for the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse which has helped churches expose and deal with this scourge in our midst.
