Pope Francis has accepted the resignations of three Chilean bishops following sex abuse scandals, including Bishop Juan Barros of Osorno, the city at the centre of the uproar, the Vatican said on Monday.

They were among 34 Chilean bishops who offered to resign last month after Francis said the country's religious hierarchy was collectively responsible for "grave defects" in handling sexual abuse cases and the church's resulting loss of credibility.

It was not immediately clear if Monday's move meant the pope would not accept any of the other resignations.

Taking over as in Barros' stead is Bishop Jorge Enrique Conchua Cayuqueo, O.F.M., auxiliary bishop of Santiago, who will serve as apostolic administrator for the Diocese of Osorno.

The bill has also become of the focus of several attempts by MPs and peers to change parts of the government's approach to Brexit. Her fellow Conservative backbencher Stephen Hammond said: "Parliament must be able to have its say in a "no deal" situation".

An worldwide family rally the Catholic Church is hosting in Ireland will feature workshops on hot-button issues facing Catholic families, including protecting children from clergy sexual abuse, weathering divorce and ministering to lesbian and gay faithful.

Under Pope Francis, a Vatican committee has been set up to fight sexual abuse and help victims.

Karadima, a charismatic cleric who was a mentor for Barros and other priests, was sentenced by the church in 2011 to a lifetime of penance and prayer for the sex crimes he is accused of.

The highest-profile of those leaving his post was Bishop Juan Barros of Osorno, 61, who has been in the vortex of the abuse saga.

During a trip to Chile in January, the pope staunchly defended Barros, saying he believed he was innocent, and that accusations against him were "slander" until proven otherwise.

The Vatican announced today that Bishop Barros of Osorno, accused of turning a blind eye to abuse committed by Fr Fernando Karadima, had been relieved of his duties along with two other bishops. Karadima, like Barros, has denied any wrongdoing. His comments stunned many Catholics in Chile and elsewhere.

It was the Pope's 2015 decision to name Bishop Barros to lead the small, southern Diocese of Osorno that sparked the abuse controversy in the country.

The announcement came in a June 11 communique from the Vatican, along with the resignation of two other Chilean bishops.

After receiving their 2,300-page report detailing the extent of clergy sexual abuse in Chile, the Pope apologised.

"I can not help but express the pain and shame, shame that I feel over the irreparable harm caused to children by church ministers", Francis said at La Moneda government palace in Santiago.
