Pope Francis Accepts The Resignation Of Archbishop

Archbishop Philip Wilson was named the most senior Catholic cleric worldwide to be convicted of covering up child sex abuse.

Recall that Naija News had reported that Wilson is facing sexual assault charges in Australia alongside George Pell.

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Philip Wilson, the Australian archbishop convicted in May of concealing abuse by a notorious pedophile priest in the 1970s, the Vatican said Monday.

The Holy Father Francis accepted the resignation of the pastoral government of the Archdiocese of Adelaide (Australia), presented by S.E. Mons. Philip Edward Wilson,” the Vatican said in a statement.
