About This Index

This database contains information about clergy members and individuals associated with the Catholic Church who have been accused of sexually abusing children. It provides an overview of the allegations, details about the alleged abusers, and the churches and parishes where they worked.

Many of these allegations have not been heard in a court of law because they were reported after the statute of limitations for the alleged abuse expired. Therefore, the allegations should not be considered substantiated unless indicated.


The database includes individuals who have been accused of having contact of a sexual nature with a minor, including online contact. The information in the database was sourced from newspaper articles;, a non-profit website that catalogs information on Catholic Church child sex abuse cases and allegations; and reports made by survivors to attorneys.
