In September of 2002, the Archdiocese of Baltimore published a list of priests and religious brothers who had served in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and who had been accused, in their lifetime, of child sexual abuse. The 57 men on that disclosure are listed below. As was noted at the time by Cardinal William H. Keeler, Archbishop of Baltimore, the disclosure did not include priests and brothers who were accused after their deaths, nor did it include a few instances where an investigation concluded that the facts did not indicate sexual abuse had occurred. For greater context, the information accompanying the 2002 disclosures can be found by following the link to this post. (FireFox is the recommended browser to use).

Also listed below are those priests of the Archdiocese of Baltimore who, after September 2002, were accused of child sexual abuse during their lifetimes along with information from the public disclosures that were made. All allegations of child sexual abuse are reported to authorities and to the Archdiocese’s Independent Child Abuse Review Board. If such reporting and investigation determined that an allegation was not credible, the alleged perpetrator is not listed here. We also provide names with information from the public disclosures made by the Archdiocese regarding some priests from religious orders or other dioceses who were accused after 2002, although the Archdiocese’s information about such non-Archdiocesan priests is often limited.
