Sexual Abuse Within the Catholic Church

A number of the attorneys featured on this website have a significant amount of experience helping people in other states who were abused by Catholic priests, clerics, employees, and volunteers of the Catholic Church.  As the Church in Pennsylvania undergoes more and more scrutiny for how it handled child abuse in its ranks, it is likely that more and more evidence will come to light showing that the Church failed to protect children from sexual predators in its ranks.

The following Dioceses and Archdioceses are located within Pennsylvania, and as of October 2016, each has been subject to investigations into how they handled child sexual abuse in their ranks:

Diocese of Allentown (Allentown, PA)
Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown (Hollidaysburg, PA)
Diocese of Erie (Erie, PA)
Diocese of Greensburg (Greensburg, PA)
Diocese of Harrisburg (Harrisburg, PA)
Archdiocese of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA)
Diocese of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA)
Diocese of Scranton (Scranton, PA)
