Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - The Diocese of Buffalo and Bishop Richard Malone are responding to the sexual abuse scandal with a video apology.

In the video, Bishop Malone offers ways in which victims may seek help and offers assurances of safety and security for the young people within the diocese.

"I ask you to come forward to law enforcement and the Diocese so that we may help you," Malone said in the video statement. "We feel a deep sense of shame that the witness of our priestly integrity has been marred by the despicable sins and crimes of a number of our brother priests."
