Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn visited Buffalo earlier this week as part of the Apostolic Visitation announced recently. He met with and interviewed more than 30 individuals and has plans to return for additional meetings later this month.
The Bishop takes his role as Visitator seriously and is determined to continue the fact-finding mission he has been directed to carry out by the Holy See. Both lay faithful and clergy, members of the Diocesan staff, and others have been invited to be a part of this process so that Bishop DiMarzio can gather information from several perspectives as part of this fact-finding mission of the Buffalo Diocese.
Bishop DiMarzio has pledged to do his best to learn the facts and gain a thorough understanding of the situation in Buffalo. Upon completion of the visitation, Bishop DiMarzio will submit a report to the Congregation for Bishops at the Vatican.
No additional information will be shared beyond this statement at this time.
