The names of seven priests of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate who have been accused of sexually abusing children will be released publicly Tuesday.

According to a statement issued by St. Paul law firm Jeff Anderson & Associates, PA, all seven of the priests served in Minnesota for part of their careers. Other locations at which the priests worked include Illinois, Missouri, Mississippi, Texas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Washington, D.C., and Canada.

The release of names is part of a settlement reached in a civil lawsuit brought against the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, the Diocese of Duluth and the Diocese of New Ulm in April.

A survivor of abuse by one of the priests named will also speak publicly on Tuesday at the naming of the priests.
