As of September 2017, eighteen Catholic religious organizations have sought bankruptcy protection in chapter 11. Thirteen (6 dioceses, 5 archdioceses and 2 religious orders) have emerged from bankruptcy after confirming consensual plans. The Archdiocese of San Diego settled with its creditors and dismissed its chapter 11 case about six months after filing. Five cases are pending, four in Minnesota, including the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and one in Montana. This archive contains key documents in these bankruptcy cases.
