The first name on a list of Wyoming priests accused of sexually abusing young boys is former Jackson clergyman Gerald Chleborad.

When reached by phone at his home in Colorado, 84-year-old Chleborad refused to comment about the serious claims.

“I don’t have anything to say,” Chleborad said Thursday before hanging up.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne released the list earlier this month after internal investigations revealed “substantiated allegations of sexual abuse.”

Three adolescent males reported being sexually abused by Chleborad, according to the list, in 1984-85, 1995 and 2003.

Chleborad moved to Jackson in the early ’90s and served as a priest at Our Lady of the Mountains and Sacred Heart Chapel in Grand Teton National Park, according to newspaper archives.
