The following 131 men are current or former priests of the Diocese of Bridgeport, the Archdiocese of Hartford, Fairfield Jesuits or the Diocese of Norwich, who have been sued, suspended following allegations of sexual abuse of minors or have claims against them. This information was obtained from the Official Catholic Directory, The Diocese of Bridgeport List of Credibly Accused Diocesan Priests & Accused Religious Order Priests who Served in the Diocese of Bridgeport, List of Archdiocese of Hartford Clergy who have been the Objects of Legal Settlements or Otherwise Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor from 1953 to Present, USA Northeast Province Jesuits with Credible Allegations of Sexual Abuse of a Minor, and List of Clergy with Allegations of Substance of Sexual Abuse of a Minor by Diocese of Norwich.

Please note: if we are actively pursuing a case or if confidentiality agreements were assigned, that priest would not be listed. Further, we have pursued and are actively pursuing cases against not only Catholic priests, but other religious institutions/denominations and figures, including nuns and other individuals associated with the church such as religious educators. If you click on a name and there is no assignments listed, we are trying to find all locations and will publish shortly. We also continually update this list with new information including dates and assignments.
