Three priests who served at St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic Church in Palatine were among the 36 named Thursday in documents released Thursday detailing sex abuse claims against members of the clergy.
St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic Church in Palatine was home from 1984 to 1994 to three priests against whom allegations of sexually abusing children were revealed in archdiocese documents Thursday.
Details of the accusations against the three men -- who have since died or been removed from ministry -- were revealed in the thousands of documents released Thursday by the Archdiocese of Chicago. In each case, the alleged abuses happened before the priests worked at the Palatine parish.
