The IICSA has called for core participant applications to be made by 24 June for all interested parties in the investigation in to the Roman Catholic Church. The preliminary hearing in connection with this investigation will be held on 28 July.
The first focus of this investigation is the English Benedictine Congregation. The findings from that case study will be important for the further case studies within the Roman Catholic Church. As has been seen in Australia, there is likely to be a number of case studies in connection with the Roman Catholic Church with an overriding final report in to the lessons which can be learned from all of those case studies.
