Leaders of the Catholic Church in New Jersey announced this week they will soon reveal the names of priests “credibly accused” of child sex abuse to help victims heal as more revealations have been made in recent months.
Indeed, at least nine members of the clergy with ties to New Jersey have faced allegations of child sex abuse in revent years. Nearly all of them were either sanctioned by the church, charged with a crime or both. Patch has the list below.
Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, the archbishop of Newark, announced Monday that the Roman Catholic Dioceses in New Jersey will undertake a complete review of their files so that, early next year, the names of all priests and deacons who have been credibly accused of the sexual abuse of minors will be made public.
