The Diocese of Buffalo and Survivors find common ground as mediation continues.
Negotiations have been ongoing between the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors appointed in the Diocese’s chapter 11 reorganization proceeding. The Committee is comprised of six claimants entrusted to represent the collective interests of all abuse survivors. Details of the negotiations remain confidential, but the Diocese and the Committee have found common ground on one key issue: they’re searching for more insurance coverage.
The Diocese has robust records of insurance coverage beginning in 1972, but has to this point been largely unsuccessful in locating proof of insurance prior to that time. Nevertheless, the Diocese and the Committee are committed to working together to locate additional policies.
“We know the Diocese owned property before 1972, and that it would have been insured. The question is what companies insured the Diocese in those years,” said Ilan Scharf, an attorney for the Committee.
“We’ve agreed to proceed cooperatively on a number of fronts,” said attorney Steve Donato, who represents the Diocese. “That includes further efforts to find policy evidence in old diocesan records and inquiries to insurance agencies that may have placed the coverage.”
Seeking help from the community
The Diocese and the Committee are also asking the public for help. Their hope is to find someone who worked decades ago at an insurance carrier or agency, or who might otherwise have knowledge or evidence of pre-1972 insurance coverage for the Diocese.
Under New York law, insurance coverage may be available even if a copy of the actual policy is never found. Rather, evidence that a policy was issued can be used to prove coverage. Such evidence might include notes in business records, cancelled checks, accounting ledgers or policy numbers or the memories of people who worked for the Diocese, parishes or insurance companies or brokers.
Road to Renewal Prayer
Dear Holy Spirit, direct our minds and hearts by your gracious presence.
Watch over our paths and guide us with your love through the challenges of each new day.
Fix our hearts on you seeking your holy will on our Road to Renewal.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

East Aurora Prayer Walk
The Churches Together of East Aurora have created a Prayer Walk for the village. It includes a prayer to be prayed at various locations in the village. Churches Together is the new name for the East Aurora Ministerium which includes representatives from the churches in East Aurora. Our parish is happy to be part of this ecumenical effort. You may access the Prayer Walk by clicking on the button below, or scanning the QR code.
