Catholic Priest

Thomas J. O’Rourke

Ordained: 1963

Father O’Rourke was accused of sexual misconduct in at least one lawsuit. For example, a lawsuit filed in 2003 alleged that O’Rourke abused an altar boy after he befriended the boy’s family while serving at Corpus Christi Parish in Woodside. The abuse is said to have occurred on a trip the boy took with O’Rourke in approximately 1974. Another victim alleged that he was abused at Corpus Christi during the 1960s.
