New Zealand's Catholic Church apologises to abuse victims at royal commission hearing


"New Zealand’s Catholic Church formally apologised on Friday to the survivors of abuse within the church and said its systems and culture must change," says this article from Reuters. According to the article, "an interim report by the Commission in December found up to a quarter of a million children, young people and vulnerable adults were physically and sexually abused in New Zealand’s faith-based and state care institutions from the 1960s to early 2000s."
