The diocese announced this afternoon that it will sell the mansion as well as a residence for retired priests on Linwood Avenue.

“This move underscores the importance we place on helping the victims of abuse to begin healing,” Malone said in a statement.
The bishop will move into the rectory of St. Stanislaus Church on Buffalo's East Side, he said.
