Burbach was accused of sexually abusing several members of a parish beginning in the 1960s. Affiliated with Pecos Benedictine Monastery. Two civil suits were filed in 1994. His name was included on the Santa Fe archdiocese’s list of accused on 9/12/17. (Burbach may be misidentified on the archdiocese’s list. There was a Rev. Maur Burbach, O.S.B. who was prominent in MO. The Official Catholic Directories throughout most of the 1960s show a Rev. Bernard Burbach, O.S.B. who was at Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Pecos, NM, in the Santa Fe archdiocese, throughout most of the 1960s. There is no indication in the Directories that Maur was assigned there. Bernard and Maur were brothers [family]. Maur Burbach died in 1982. Bernard died in 1969.)

Our Database of Publicly Accused does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
