We represent a number of people who were sexually abused by priests associated with the Diocese of Albany. Over 40 priests within the Diocese have been the subject of allegations of childhood sexual abuse, although many of the allegations were not investigated because of New York’s outdated statute of limitations for abuse survivors.
The following list of priests who have faced abuse allegations was compiled from different sources, including news reports. Please know some of the allegations are disputed by the individuals listed below. Where possible we have provided a summary of the allegations and a list of the individual’s known assignments.
By default the list below is sorted by the priest’s last name. You can also sort the list by first name.
Please know the list is not intended to be exhaustive — there are likely priests and others in the Diocese of Albany who abused children but who are not listed below.
