Decades of past abuse were published in a December 7th report ‘Credible Claims of Sexual Abuse of a Minor or Vulnerable Adult.’ by the Jesuits West Province. In that report, 33 of the claims identify Alaska clergy and volunteers as perpetrators of sexually abusing children.

Jesuits West said its list is the province’s ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability. Many of the claims were made after an accused priest was deceased. Those cases were not able to be investigated, according to the Jesuit West Providence.
