Assignment Record – Rev. H. Cornell Bradley, s.j.


Summary of Case: A Maryland Province Jesuit ordained in 1969, Bradley was first removed from ministry in 1993 after accusations surfaced that he had engaged in “sexual misconduct” with three people, including two 15 year-old boys and a woman. He was sent to treatment and returned to ministry in 1995. In 2006 Bradley was again accused, this time of sexual misconduct with an adult male during the early 1980s. As a result of this and four other credible allegations involving minors and adults over the course of three decades, he was again removed from ministry. Subsequently five more people came forward, several with reports that Bradley had engaged in sexual misconduct with minors in the 1960s and ’70s at Gonzaga College High School, where he spent much of his career pre and post-ordination. Others complained that he had made inappropriate sexual comments involving a student and staff member at St. Joseph’s University, where he worked in the late 1990s and until his removal in 2006. In addition to his time in Washington DC, Bradley’s career took him to India, Chile, Baltimore MD, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. In 2007 Bradley was said to be living under supervision in a Jesuit community on the East Coast.
