Francis J. Manzo

Ordained: 1962

A 2002 lawsuit accused Father Manzo of sexual abuse of a minor. The lawsuit alleged that Manzo had “violently” abused a boy he met while serving at St. Catherine of Alexandria Church in Brooklyn during the early 1990s. It has been reported that Manzo has been on leave from the Diocese of Brooklyn since 1995.  He was removed from ministry in 2003.
