Catholic Priest

Felix R. Colosimo

Ordained: 1965

A 2017 lawsuit accused Father Colosimo of sexually abusing a minor between approximately 1987 and 1990. The lawsuit further alleged that most of the incidents occurred in the rectory of St. Leo’s Church in Holland Patent, and some occurred at St. Peter’s Church in North Utica. The Diocese reportedly confirmed that Colosimo was removed from priestly ministry in 2014 when it found an accusation against him “credible.”
