A Montclair woman has filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Newark, Immaculate Conception Church and St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish, alleging sexual assault by a priest and two nuns at Immaculate Conception when she was a young girl.
Mary Joy Morgan filed the lawsuit in Essex County Superior Court on Nov. 24, alleging that the Rev. William Dowd, then the pastor at Immaculate Conception, and Sisters Maria Michael and Alice Bernadette subjected her to sexual abuse and rape over a period of seven years, starting when she was 8 years old.
