Catholic Church Scandal Getty RF

The Baton Rouge Catholic Diocese is hiring a law firm to help shed light on possible sexual abuse within the church.

Bishop Michael Duca says the personnel files of all priests and deacons who have served in the diocese since its creation in 1961 will be reviewed.

Duca, who wants to release the list early next year, says he will use the results of the review to create a list of "credibly and substantially accused clergy."
