Final Addendum
Final Addendum to the
Report to the People of God discovered this document on the website of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It lists 49 "names of clergy from a follow up review of Archdiocesan files, and names of clergy involved in Clergy I litigation which were not previously posted." The list includes 24 names of accused priests not previously known.

In a letter to Archbishop Gomez, this organization urged him to make public the allegations against the priests and brothers, as well as their career histories. Such information has been provided by the archdiocese when they released lists of names in the past. We also expressed concern that this list, which has apparently existed since October 2008, has not been made public in a proper way, and that children have been put at risk as a result.

The PDF properties of the document show that it was created and presumably posted on January 31, 2013. No announcement was made by the archdiocese of the document's publication, although it is clearly related to the archdiocese's release on the same day of clergy files, under the nonmonetary terms of the 2007 settlement. Archbishop Gomez did not mention the release of the Final Addendum in his January 31, 2013 letter.

This release of names is momentous. Perhaps only when Cardinal Keeler of Baltimore released his list on September 25, 2002, have so many names of accused priests come into the public domain by a bishop's actions. On several occasions, bishops have been compelled to release names by survivors' nonmonetary conditions in a bankruptcy proceeding (e.g., Bishop Kettler in Fairbanks) or by a grand jury report (Cardinal Rigali, who removed 21 priests in Philadelphia), but Archbishop Gomez' release of 24 new names is a remarkable and disturbing development.

The release of the names was first reported in L.A. Archdiocese Adds Priests' Names to Abuse List, by Harriet Ryan, Los Angeles Times (2/13/13).

Below we provide links to the so-called Final Addendum, the previous reports issued by the Los Angeles archdiocese, and our letter to Archbishop Gomez. Then we begin to provide assignment histories for the 24 "new" priests on the list.

Assignment Histories

We are working on assignment histories for all the "new" accused priests listed in the Final Addendum and others whose assignments have not yet been established.

The introduction to the Final Addendum states that the list "includes names of clergy from a follow up review of Archdiocesan files, and names of clergy involved in Clergy I litigation which were not previously posted." This webpage does not state or imply that individuals whose assignments are presented here are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.

We will be posting additional assignment histories. Please refresh this page to see the latest additions.

Chancery Positions

A canon lawyer, O’Brien was prominent in the archdiocese. Early in his career, he was vice-chancellor (1953-1955), and for most of his priesthood, from 1949 to 1999, he occupied key positions in the archdiocesan tribunal, sometimes called the matrimonial court. From 1974 to 1984, he was the tribunal’s Officialis, or Presiding Judge.

Died November 22, 1999

Note: O'Brien retired from parish work in 1971, at the relatively young age of 60. The Official Catholic Directory records four addresses for him from 1971 to his death in 1999: P. O. Box 3163, Terminal Annex, 90064 (1971-1976 and 1984-1989); 1583 W. 9th St., 90015 (1976-1984 – these were the archdiocesan offices); 130 N.

Note: At St. Alphonsus, two of the three priests were ultimately accused: Sanchez and also the pastor, Rev. Joseph D. Pina. Sanchez and Pina were the sole priests for half of Sanchez’s time at St. Alphonsus.  In the 1996 Directory, the middle initial G. is dropped, but the ’83 ordination year confirms identity.  Then in the 1997 Directory, the G. is restored, but Jose is transformed to Joseph.  Again, the ’83 confirms the identity, and he is in the same Lynwood parish during these transformations. Two years out of the Directory are
