The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence in Rhode Island has released a list containing the names of dozens of clergy members who it says have been “credibly accused of the sexual abuse of minors.”

The list — which is dated June 28 and includes 50 names overall —  highlights each individual’s connections to the Diocese and their parish and ministry assignments. Nineteen of the priests and deacons on the list are still alive, but all of them have been “removed from ministry,” the Diocese says.

“To the victims/survivors and their families, and to the many faithful Catholics who have been rightly scandalized by these disgraceful events, I offer the profound apology of the Church and the Diocese of Providence,” Thomas Tobin, the Bishop of Providence, wrote in a letter coinciding with the release of the list. “We pray fervently that God will give you the grace of healing and peace.”
