Even the claim of Doe is credible the church denied them in 2019. Bishop William Byrne said that any public statement made in behalf of the diocese is withdrawn and apologized to Mr. Doe for any harm done made by the statement. A settlement was then agreed but the terms of it was not disclosed.

The abused occurred in St. Anne Parish in Chicopee, Massachusetts when the then Bishop Christopher Weldon served in 1950 to 1977. Before a lawsuit was even filed there was claims that Weldon was abusing children and credible statements were made, but due to his prominence and revered legacy it was not pursued. Nancy Frankel Pelletier said that the church failed to acknowledge the allegations and protest and denied accepting responsibility.
