During the recent release of The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Secretariat of Child and Youth Protection and the National Review Board's 2015 Annual Report on the Implementation of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was mistakenly named as an eparchy and as non-compliant.
Bishop Steven J. Lopes was ordained the Ordinariate's first bishop in February 2016. The Ordinariate did not participate in the 2015 audit due to its new ecclesiastical structure in the United States. In collaboration with StoneBridge Business Partners, the Ordinariate will participate in a data collection for the 2016 audit, with a scheduled onsite visit for the 2017 audit.
The information in the report was gathered between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015. The report on the response of the Catholic Church in the United States to clergy sexual abuse includes an annual survey conducted by Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) and an annual audit to numerous dioceses and eparchies.
