Former NH Priest Named in New York List of Abusers, SNAP Urges Outreach

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

April 29, 2019

A former New Hampshire priest has been named a credibly accused child molester by Catholic officials.

Fr. John Voglio’s name was posted Friday on the Archdiocese of New York’s list of abusers. Voglio had previously been mentioned in a 2003 New Hampshire attorney general’s report but, until last week, there was no admission by church figures anywhere that the abuse allegations against him were legitimate.

We hope Manchester Bishop Peter Libasci will disclose more details about Fr. Voglio’s time in the state and his current whereabouts. Fr. Voglio belongs or belonged to a Catholic religious order known as the Salesians.

And we hope others who may have seen, suspected or suffered abuse in New Hampshire – by Fr. Voglio or others – will find the courage to speak up, make a report to the police and attorney general, and find pathways to start healing.
