A priest listed on the board of a Long Island nonprofit that counsels drug-addicted teens was once named in the out-of-court settlement of a sexual-abuse suit, says a group made up of victims of abusive priests.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests voiced outrage at Monsignor Brendan Riordan, pastor of St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Great Neck, for being on the advisory board to the Community Organization for Parents and Youth.

But COPAY Director Maria Cuadra said that it was all "a terrible mistake" caused by an out-of-date Web site and that Riordan no longer has any affiliation with her group.
