“‘Be loving critics and critical lovers of the institutional church.’ Jennifer Haselberger first heard that phrase while she was an undergraduate student at the College of St. Catherine (now St. Catherine University) in St. Paul, Minn.  When she returned home in 2008 to take the position of chancellor of canonical affairs for the St. Paul-Minneapolis archdiocese, the phrase returned with her. Responsible for its
records and archives, she discovered unreported allegations of clergy sex abuse and lapses in investigations.

Ultimately, Haselberger, 38, resigned her position in April, saying that she found it impossible to continue in her position knowing such gaffes existed and that her efforts to rectify them had proved futile. So, she alerted law officials and local media.” Excerpt above from:  http://ncronline.org/news/accountability/shining-light-failures
