List made public naming priests accused of sexual abuse

The issue of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church has been gaining more attention, as more survivors come forward with credible claims and pursue legal action against those they believe are responsible for the harms they suffered. The Hartford Archdiocese recently published a list of 48 priests who are facing credible accusations of sexual abuse against minors. In addition, the archdiocese issued a statement that it has paid approximately $50.6 million in settlements of over 140 sexual abuse cases. The archdiocese has retained the services of a retired Connecticut judge in order execute a review of all the church's personnel files going back to the formation of the diocese in 1953, to address the issue of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, so that answers can be found, and further actions can be taken if necessary.

When you put your child in the care of another adult, you trust they will protect, care for and treat your son or daughter with respect. Yet, all too often news reports tell stories of the complete opposite. Such is the case in the recently-released list of Diocesan priests in Hartford, Bridgeport, Norwich as well as Jesuit priests who have been accused of abusing minors.
