Rev. Bruce MacArthur
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio
June 22, 2014
The Archdiocese of San Antonio recently received a credible allegation of clergy sexual abuse from a woman who, as a minor, was abused at St. James Catholic Church in San Antonio in the late 1970's. During the course of our investigation, we determined that Rev. Bruce MacArthur was at St. James from 1979-1980 and 1983-1984 and was at St. Dominic from 1980-1982. Our investigation further confirmed that Rev. MacArthur was convicted of attempted rape of a vulnerable adult prior to 1979, and of Sexual Intercourse with a Child and Indecent Behavior with a Child in Wisconsin in 2008. Rev. MacArthur is since deceased.
