Statement from Bishop Cistone

SAGINAW — “As you are aware, yesterday, March 22, the Diocese was served with a search warrant. This warrant included the Diocesan offices and Center for Ministry, the Bishop's residence, and the Cathedral. 

“I understand this news is distressing and disheartening for the greater community and most especially our Catholic faithful.

“The Diocese has made a sincere effort to cooperate with law enforcement to date and will continue to do so moving forward.”
