Catholic Priest

Paul I. Cloonan

Ordained: 1954

Father Cloonan’s name reportedly appeared on the Diocese of Rochester’s 2012 list of priests who were removed from ministry since 2002. Cloonan appears to have been laicized following allegations that he sexually abused a minor. While his assignment in 1988 was St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Scottsville, his assignment for 1989 is listed as “unassigned.”
