Priests from Stottville and Ravena are among the newly identified defendants in child sexual abuse complaints against the Albany Catholic Diocese on Monday under the state’s Child Victims Act.
Father Andrew J. Lenahan is accused of sexually abusing a minor from approximately 1960 to 1963 at Holy Family in Stottville and Father Bernard Turner is accused of sexually abusing a minor from approximately 1981 to 1982 at St. Patrick in Ravena.
“The diocese takes all allegations of sexual abuse seriously,” Albany Diocese Director of Communications Mary DeTurris Poust said in a statement Tuesday. “Behind every claim is a suffering person who needs our compassion and assistance.”
