CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) -- It's been more than a week since the summit held by Pope Francis regarding sexual abuse took place.

The Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne is trying to address abuse in the church. It continues to implement policies regarding abuse. When asked about the summit, Bishop Steven Biegler said, "There wasn't appropriate church policies regarding Bishops who abused or Bishops who failed in their response to abuse. They covered up and really failed to handle abuse properly."

The Diocese of Cheyenne has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to sexual abuse.
