Diocesan statement on Canon Francis Brown

The Diocese of Dromore understands that, following a full investigation by the relevant authorities, no charges are being brought by the Public Prosecution Service with regard to an historical allegation raised last year against Canon Francis Brown.

The normal review and procedures in accordance with the Church’s national and diocesan policies will now resume and a further statement will be made when these processes are complete.

The Diocese advises anyone who may have a concern of a safeguarding nature to contact the PSNI, Social Services, or the Diocesan Designated Safeguarding Officer (Telephone: 077 8991 7741).
