Man Accuses Priests of Sexual Abuse

Albuquerque Journal (New Mexico)
January 24, 1997

A Pena Blanca man claims he was sexually molested by two priests when he was a student at St. Catherine Indian School in Santa Fe in the early 1980s.

Joseph Lovato, 29, filed a complaint with Santa Fe police on Thursday accusing Dennis Huff and Christopher Kerr of sexually molesting him from August 1980 to May 1983, according to a police report.

The alleged abuse occurred when he was in seventh, eighth and ninth grades at St. Catherine, the report said.

The two clergymen no longer work at the school and their whereabouts are not known, the report said.

Neither priest is associated with the Archdioceses of Santa Fe, spokeswoman Mary Ryland said.

"They clearly are not dioceses priests. They are not ordained to serve the dioceses," she said.

Police were unable to provide more information on the alleged crime. Efforts to reach Lovato were unsuccessful.
