Erie Diocese Sexual Abuse
Possible Fund for Abuse Survivors: On November 8, 2018, the Diocese of Erie announced it may create a “reparation” program to compensate survivors of child sexual abuse. The deadline for filing a claim may be short. If you or someone you love was abused by someone within the Diocese of Erie, please contact us for a free, confidential consultation to learn your options.
More than 30 priests within the Diocese of Erie have been the subject of allegations of childhood sexual abuse, although many of the allegations were not investigated because of Pennsylvania’s outdated statute of limitations for abuse survivors.
The following list of priests who have faced abuse allegations was compiled from different sources, including news reports. Please know some of the allegations are disputed by the individuals listed below. Where possible we have provided a summary of the allegations and a list of the individual’s known assignments.
By default the list below is sorted by the priest’s last name. You can also sort the list by first name.
Please know the list is not intended to be exhaustive — there are likely priests and others in the Diocese of Erie who abused children but who are not listed below.
