Catholics throughout Western New York converged on the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo Monday to demand the resignation of Bishop Richard Malone.

"Any man that makes that choice to send predators out in public like that to do it to more kids are not in their right mind," said one parishioner Paul Ogrobina.

This all comes weeks after a 7 Eyewitness News I-Team investigation citing internal church documents was brought to light. The documents showed the Bishop returned two priests to ministry despite allegations of sexual misconduct.

"The abuse and cover up by leadership...that's not who the Catholic Church is," said Jim Havens.

Havens started the grassroots efforts to bring outraged Catholics together in an effort to keep everyone strong.

Bishop Malone released a letter to parishioners during Sunday Mass yesterday. You can read that here .
