The following clergy are no longer in public ministry because an allegation of sexual abuse of a minor has been substantiated.
The list includes all priests and deacons of the Archdiocese of Chicago and all extern and religious order priests serving in the archdiocese against whom there have been an allegation which was substantiated by the archdiocese’s Review Process for Continuation of Ministry administered by the Independent review Board. Prior to the creation of the Review Board in 1992, allegations were substantiated by administrative review.
An allegation is deemed to be substantiated if there is reasonable cause to believe that abuse occurred. This determination follows a process of consultation and is not a legal judgment.
Every effort has been made to make sure that the list is accurate. Questions about the list should be in writing and directed to the Office for the Protection of Children and Youth, Archdiocese of Chicago, P.O. Box 1979, Chicago, IL 60690.
