HOME DETENTION APPROVED
Today Archbishop Wilson appeared in the Newcastle Magistrates Court where home detention was approved. He will now remain in NSW to begin his six month non-parole sentence at the home of a relative.
The arrangements made by Pope Francis for the care of the Archdiocese by the Apostolic Administrator Bishop Greg O’Kelly SJ remain in place while the search for a new Archbishop continues.
Bishop O’Kelly said he was keeping Archbishop Wilson in his prayers as he formally commences this stage in his life, while also remembering the victims and survivors of abuse in the Church.
