Where did the 42 Catholic Diocese of Buffalo priests who had credible allegations of sexual misconduct involving minors work?

Diocese officials did not release that information Tuesday when Bishop Richard J. Malone released for the first time a list of the 42 priests accused of sexual contact with minors.

The diocese’s annual directories and newspaper archives provide some information, although there are a few gaps in the records available. It’s possible the priests served in additional parishes beyond those listed below:

John R. Aurelio, from 1967 to 1993: St. Helen’s, Hinsdale; Cardinal Mindszenty High School, Dunkirk; St. Leo the Great, Amherst; West Seneca Developmental Center; St. Catherine of Siena, West Seneca; St. John the Evangelist, Buffalo; and Christ the King Seminary, East Aurora.

Donald W. Becker, from 1968 to 2002: St. Mark’s, Rushford; St. Mary’s of the Assumption, Lancaster; St. Bonaventure, West Seneca; SS. Peter & Paul, Hamburg; Nativity of Our Lord, Orchard Park; St. Stephen’s, Grand Island; St. Agatha’s, Buffalo; St. Joseph’s, Fredonia; St. Mary’s, Batavia.

David M. Bialkowski, from 1989 to 2011: St. Bernard’s, Buffalo; SS. Peter & Paul, Hamburg; and St. John Gualbert, Cheektowaga.
