WINONA, Minn. (AP) -- The Diocese of Winona says it will comply with a judge's order and release a list of 13 priests credibly accused of sexually abusing minors.

A Ramsey County judge on Monday ordered the Winona diocese and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to release the names of accused clergy by Dec. 17.

KAGE Radio reports Bishop John Quinn says the Winona diocese will cooperate with the judge's order.

In a statement, Quinn says the diocese "is committed to the protection of children and the safe environment of our parishes, schools and greater communities."

The Winona Daily News reports the exact date and procedure for releasing the information has not yet been determined.

The Twin Cities archdiocese plans to release the names of more than two dozen clergy on Thursday.
