ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has named the firm it has hired to review priest files as part of its plan to address clergy sexual misconduct.

The archdiocese announced Thursday that Kinsale Management Consulting will conduct the review.

Kinsale was founded by Kathleen McChesney, a former top FBI official. She was also head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office for Child and Youth Protection, where she oversaw a program to ensure dioceses complied with policies to prevent and report sexual abuse.

The archdiocese says Kinsale’s review will add another level of accountability and help protect children.

Kinsale will begin reviewing files early next month, starting with all clergy in active ministry. Kinsale will conduct an initial assessment before determining how long the review will take.
