Statement from Archbishop Philip Wilson

I intend to lodge an appeal against my conviction to the District Court of New South Wales. 

I am conscious of calls for me to resign and have taken them very seriously.  However, at this time, I am entitled to exercise my legal rights and to follow the due process of law.  Since that process is not yet complete, I do not intend to resign at this time.  However, if I am unsuccessful in my appeal, I will immediately offer my resignation to the Holy See.

In the meantime, I have stood aside from all duties.

The legal process must now be allowed to proceed in the normal way and therefore I do not intend to make any further comment at this time.
