STEUBENVILLE The Diocese of Steubenville has received what it considers to be a substantiated allegation of abuse of a minor child by Father John B. Nadzam.

Father Nadzam died in February 2005.

The incident of abuse was described as having occurred in the 1970s.

Diocesan officials, acting in accord with the Diocese of Steubenville "Decree on Child Protection," notified local civil authorities when they first learned of the allegation.

Ordained to the priesthood in 1950, Father Nadzam served parishes in Steubenville, Buchtel, Chesapeake, Fairpoint, Dillonvale, Pomeroy and Shadyside and a mission in Modoc while in the Steubenville Diocese.

He also was a teacher at Catholic Central High School, Steubenville, and principal of St. Joseph Central High School, Ironton.

If anyone has been abused by Father Nadzam, or anyone else connected to the Diocese of Steubenville, he or she should contact Msgr. Kurt H. Kemo, vicar general of the Diocese of Steubenville, by telephone at (740) 282-3631 or through e-mail at, as well as local civil authorities.

When allegations are made concerning child abuse, they are dealt with in a straightforward and compassionate manner.

We are committed to full compliance with state law and church policy on abuse.

At the same time, I ask for prayers for those who are victims of child abuse and for those who are perpetrators of child abuse, particularly within the Catholic Church.
