The head of a task force that will review issues related to clergy sexual misconduct in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is expected to announce more details about the group.
    
The Rev. Reginald Whitt is meeting with the media Wednesday afternoon. He's expected to speak about the independent task force and its mission. He'll also announce the members of the group.
    
One member, Brian Short, will speak about the role of the task force and its scope.
    
On Sunday, Archbishop John Nienstedt announced the task force would review how officials have handled accusations of priest misconduct, after one pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct last year and another was recently accused of having child pornography.
    
Nienstedt says addressing these serious allegations are a "top priority."
