The Diocese of Corpus Christi plans to release the names of priests who have been accused of sexually abusing minors at the end of this month.

In October, the Texas Catholic Bishops announced its plan to release the names of priests and clergy members who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children.

The Diocese of Corpus Christi’s Director of Communications Margie Rivera told KRIS 6 News it plans to release the list at the end of this month.

She also said other dioceses across the state have decided to release their lists at the end of this month as well.

The lists trace abuse back to the 1950s.
