[This webpage provides two lists of accused priests, brothers, and nuns who are not listed on the Archdiocese of New Orleans' list of accused clergy but were assigned in the archdiocese. See Judge Grabill's 10/1/20 order regarding the Committee's list of "additional clergy against whom Sexual Abuse lawsuits have been filed and clergy accused of Sexual Abuse by other religious orders and dioceses."]

Disclaimer: The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors (the “Committee”) has not independently investigated the allegations of sexual abuse against the people listed below. The Committee does not assert that the allegations of sexual abuse against them are true.
The people named below have been accused of committing sexual abuse. These people have served within the territorial limits of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. A religious order and/or diocese outside of the Archdiocese of New Orleans found sexual abuse accusations against these people to be credible. This list provides the information we have available regarding assignments and dates but may not be complete. This list will be modified from time to time as additional information becomes available.

Las personas nombradas a continuación han sido acusadas de cometer abusos sexuales. Estas personas han servido dentro de los límites territoriales de la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleans. Una orden religiosa y/o diócesis fuera de la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleans ha encontrado que las acusaciones de abuso sexual contra estas personas son creíbles. Esta lista proporciona la información que tenemos disponible con respecto a las asignaciones y las fechas, pero es posible que no esté completa. Esta lista se modificará de vez en cuando a medida que se disponga de información adicional.
