Accused Priest Has Brain Tumor

San Francisco Chronicle
March 19, 1997

The Rev. Vincent O'Neill, a Windsor priest recently accused of molesting five teenage boys in the 1970s, has a brain tumor and may die soon, Roman Catholic Church officials said.

Leaders at several Sonoma County churches where O'Neill once served announced the news to parishioners during the past 10 days. A bulletin Sunday at St. Sebastian's Church in Sebastopol said the 51-year-old priest "is critically ill with a brain tumor and is not expected to live more than a few weeks." Other officials and church members said the priest may have as long as a year to live.

O'Neill, a North Coast priest for 25 years, resigned as pastor of Windsor's Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in November after he was accused of sexually molesting five boys about 20 years ago. In January, the Diocese of Santa Rosa settled the claims of five men.
