Archbishop John C. Nienstedt

In this Oct. 21, 2010 file photo, Archbishop John C. Nienstedt talks about the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis at his office in St. Paul, Minn. Recent allegations of sexual misconduct uncovered by Jennifer Haselberger, the former archdiocese’s chancellor for canonical affairs, have the St. Paul-Minneapolis Archdiocese playing defense. Last week, Nienstedt accepted the hasty resignation of his top-ranking deputy, the Rev. Peter Laird, who wrote in his resignation letter that he hoped to “repair the trust of many, especially the victims of abuse.” Nienstedt also convened what he said would be an independent task force to examine the way church leaders officials have handled accusations of sexual misconduct by priests.
