Bishop Curtis Guillory, SVD, joined other Texas bishops on Oct. 10 in announcing their decision to release names of clergy credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors.

This decision, made by the 15 Catholic dioceses of Texas and the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, is in the context of the ongoing work to protect children from sexual abuse and their efforts to promote healing and the restoration of trust in the church.

Bishop Curtis Guillory of the Beaumont Diocese released a statement Thursday, June 21. The statement reads:

“My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“An estimated 2,600 children have now been separated from their parents at the Texas/Mexico border. I am encouraged that the President has signed an executive order to end this practice that had been part of the Administration’s zero tolerance policy. 


After 25 years of service to the Catholic Church and more than 12 years as bishop of Beaumont, the diocese celebrated the anniversary of the Episcopal ordination of Bishop Curtis Guillory on Sunday, Feb. 10, at the 4 p.m. mass at St. Anthony Cathedral and also held a reception that evening at the Beaumont Civic Center.
