imageMonica Clark writes in the National Catholic Reporter that the Legionaries of Christ have withdrawn from a California parish:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Citing its need to restructure in the United States after a series of sex abuse scandals involving its founder and several prominent members, the Legionaries of Christ are withdrawing from the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe . . . in the state capital. . . .  ‘

Sacramento Bishop Jaime Soto said he was "extremely grateful" for the Legionaries’ service in the diocese, noting in a statement on the diocesan website that they had established a permanent exhibit of the Shroud of Turin at the parish, "strengthened faith formation and education, inspired family events and pro-life efforts, and solidified dozens of parish ministries."

Let’s hope it is permanent. Other permanent Shroud exhibits have not always been so permanent.
