Bishop George V. Murry, S.J. has appointed seven new members to the Diocesan Review Board for the Protection of Children and Young People, effective June 1, 2017.  The new appointees join those already serving on the board.

As a point of clarification, in 2002, Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, then-bishop of Youngstown, established the diocesan review board under the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and the Essential Norms dealing with allegations of sexual abuse by priests, deacons and other church personnel.

The new board members come with a wide range of expertise relevant to the issues of child abuse, including law, social services, medicine, pastoral ministry, psychology and municipal child protection.
