Kenneth Wicks

Ordained: 1963

In the 1980s, Kenneth Wick sexually abused at least two minor children at St. Gabriel’s Parish in East New York, Brooklyn.  The two sexual abuse victims allegedly reported the sexual abuse to a leader of the Diocese of Brooklyn in the 1990s but nothing was done to help the victims heal and compensate the victims for their injuries. In fact, one of the victims was allegedly told that Kenneth Wicks suffered a fatal heart attack or stroke after being confronted with his allegations when, in fact, Wicks reportedly killed himself in 1993 in his vacation home in upstate New York.
