What’s Been Reported
- Checchio was rector of the North American College in Rome when McCarrick stayed at the seminary during the conclave in 2013.
- When a bishop is assigned to a new diocese, he has the responsibility to familiarize himself with past clergy abuse settlements. Checchio reportedly failed to take action regarding the Diocese of Metuchen’s past settlement involving McCarrick.
- In light of the Metuchen sexual abuse settlement, why would Checchio permit McCarrick to stay at the North American College Seminary and subject his seminarian students to McCarrick’s possible predation?
