Transcribed from a video in Diocese of Gaylord Releases List of Priests Accused of Sexual Abuse, by David Lyden and Jeff Blakeman, 9 & 10 News WWTV, November 14, 2018. See screen shots below.

In our ongoing efforts to help victim-survivors in their healing process and to be transparent regarding clergy sexual abuse involving minors, we have posted a list of the names of clergy who have known credible and substantiated allegations of sexual abuse involving minors in the Diocese of Gaylord to our website. The list goes back to the date of the establishment of our diocese (1971) to the present day. While news releases may have been issued regarding specific cases previously, we had not published a comprehensive listing until now. We are not notifying the media regarding this posting at this time and do not want you to make any kind of announcement, but we are sharing with you that it is there. You will find it under the Child Protection section of the diocesan website –

If you have any questions, please don’t hestitate to contact me.
