The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is the 12th in the nation to seek bankruptcy protection. Archdiocese leaders announced their decision last week in the face of sex abuse claims.

How will the process play out here compared to in other archdiocese around the country? What does it mean for parishes and schools? MPR News Reporter Madeleine Baran, who led MPR's coverage of the clergy sex abuse scandal, and Charles Zech, director of the Center for Church Management at Villanova University, join The Daily Circuit to talk about what's next.
