Fr. Warren Discon
Named publicly as accused of abuse by the Vincentian Order on its list in 2020. It notes a single allegation reported in 2005 of abuse in the 1970s. Discon died in 1993. The list does not reveal the place of the alleged abuse. Discon had assignments in IL, TX, MO and LA. The Official Catholic Directory lists Discon as on staff at the Servants of the Paraclete’s Foundation House in Jemez Springs, NM in 1987. The Vincentians’ posted assignment history for Discon does not reflect this. (Placing Discon’s entry under St. Louis for now, where the Order is headquartered.)
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.
