Belschner, Ronald – In August 2019, the Archdiocese of Baltimore announced an allegation of child sexual abuse against Father Ronald Belschner. The alleged abuse occurred in the mid-1970s while Belschner was serving at St. Gregory the Great (Baltimore). Belschner denied the allegations. Belschner’s faculties to function as a priest had been permanently removed in 1991 when he went on a leave of absence. Belschner served at St. Mark (Catonsville) from 1965 to 1969, at St. Gregory the Great from 1969 to 1976, at All Saints from 1976 to 1981, at St. Joseph (Buckeystown) from 1981 to 1989, and at St. Mary (Cumberland) from 1989 to 1991.
