Report by the Hon Antony Whitlam QC received


13 December 2012

The Bishop of Armidale, Most Rev Michael Kennedy, and the Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, have received the report on the former priest “Father F” that they commissioned from the Hon Antony Whitlam QC. The terms of reference were published by the Bishops in July this year.

The report contains Mr Whitlam’s findings into the processes related to the management of the former priest, who is the subject of allegations of abuse of children.

The report has been given in confidence to the NSW Police and will be released, subject to their advice, as soon as practicable. The report will then be published on the websites of both Dioceses.

The Bishops will not be commenting further until the release of the report.
