December 17, 2002

The Rev. Francis A. Talbot is a Manchester native who was ordained a diocesan priest in the early 1960s.

Talbot, 66, served as a part-time chaplain at the former New Hampshire Industrial School in Manchester from 1968 to 1988.

Talbot also served as Catholic chaplain at the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord. The prison's 1976-78 biennial report lists him as working there for the previous 10 years.

Talbot's parish assignments included St. Catherine Parish in Manchester and, according to one parishioner, St. Patrick Parish on Manchester's West Side.

The priest told the court he was working at the Veterans Administration hospital in Manchester when child sexual abuse allegations surfaced against him in October 2000 and Manchester Bishop John B. McCormack suspended him.

He was among the 14 priests accused of past child sexual abuse whose names were released by McCormack in February.

Talbot said he attended local parochial schools.

Although he lived across the street from a public school, his parents had him walk every day to a school some distance away so he could learn French, he told the court yesterday.

Talbot attended the former Bishop Bradley High School in Manchester. He then studied at St. Anselm College for several years. He attended seminary in Montreal, where he said he was third in his class.

He said he continued his religious studies at St. Mary's Pontifical University and Seminary in Maryland. Talbot said he has three master's degrees and a doctorate.
