Archdiocesan Priests with Substantiated Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with Minors
(Includes Living Current and Former Priests and Deceased Priests Who Were Able to Respond to the Allegations)

[Transcribed on 1/4/10 from]

The following Archdiocesan priests are no longer in public ministry because an allegation of sexual misconduct with a minor has been substantiated. The list includes priests against whom there have been substantiated allegations since 1950.

The allegations were substantiated by the Archdiocese's Review Process for Continuation of Ministry administered by the Professional Responsibility Review Board. Prior to the creation of the Review Board in 1992, allegations were substantiated by administrative review. None of the priests are in ministry.

An allegation is deemed to be substantiated if there is reasonable cause to believe that abuse occurred. This determination follows a process of consultation and is not a legal judgment.

Deceased priests who did not have an opportunity to respond to an allegation before they died are not included on the list.

Every effort has been made to make sure that the list is accurate. Questions about the list should be in writing and directed to the Office of the Chancellor, Archdiocese of Chicago, P.O. Box 1979, Chicago, IL 60690.
