The Diocese of St. Cloud is continuing its release of names of priests who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors.

The first list was released Jan. 3. Of the 33 names, 21 of them were dead.

Bishop Donald Kettler said he has been reviewing reports from previous diocese records maintained by bishops and clergy before him to determine the names that should be released.

Kettler said since releasing the list, four more names have come to his attention that were not previously documented.
