Church appoints former Supreme Court judge to commission

A FORMER Supreme Court judge will head up a new Truth, Justice and Healing Commission to liaise with the Royal Commission into child sexual abuse on behalf of the Catholic Church.

The Australian Catholic Bishop's Conference announced on Wednesday it would set up the next commission.

The church's new commission will be led by retired judge Barry O'Keefe QC and Francis Sullivan, a long-time associate of the Australian Medical Association.

The bishop's conference said the new healing commission would also talk to victims of clergy sexual abuse, in a church bid to solve past wrongs.

It is understood the new commission will provide a conduit between the church and the royal commission.
