Summary This yearlong MPR News investigation revealed that, despite decades of assurances that the Catholic Church was safe, leaders of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis had continued to cover up abuse of children by priests. In a series of multiplatform presentations – including radio reports, an hour-long radio documentary, a four-chapter Web story and an online database of accused priests – we revealed the scope of the abuse crisis and the financial decisions by leaders of the Twin Cities archdiocese that protected priests and kept victims quiet.
