Catholic Priest

Donald J. Hebert

Ordained: 1981

Father Hebert was reportedly the coordinator for religious activities for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in 1989. Hebert is said to have been treated at St. Luke’s Institute following allegations that he sexually abused a minor. The family of the boy reportedly did not press charges because Hebert apologized to them. Hebert was removed in 2002 as pastor of St. Joseph/St. Patrick Church in Utica. He was permanently removed from ministry in 2003 because of “credible allegations of sexual abuse of minors.”
