Fr. John J. Stronkowski

Ordained: 1985
Status: Accused

Diocese: Diocese of Bridgeport CT

Placed on leave in 5/14. Per Bishop Caggiano in a letter to parishioners, leave was for “persistent absenteeism…..growing difficulties with both the staff and lay leaders and other personal and administrative shortcomings.” In 6/16 Stronkowski’s name was on diocese’s list of credibly accused, noting an incident of abuse of a minor in the 1990s. Faculties removed. Per a 2019 report commissioned by the diocese there was one victim, an 11-year-old boy, abused in 1999.

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.
