Catholic Archdiocese releases names of religious accused of sexually molesting children - five in Shoreline, 14 in Kenmore

Sunday, January 17, 2016

The 77 individuals whose names were published on the archdiocese website Friday “have allegations that are either admitted, established or determined to be credible,” the archdiocese wrote in a news release.


Below are the offenders who had assignments in Shoreline, as priests, brothers, or deacons between 1923 and 2008, and their current status. An additional list, shows the largest number, who were at St. Edward's Seminary (now closed) in Kenmore.

Laicized means that they left the priesthood. "Permanent prayer and penance" means the subject is still a priest, but removed from public ministry and doing penance and praying for those they have harmed.

Note: a Google search did not bring up a St. Mark catholic church actually located in Seattle (St. Mark Cathedral is Episcopal), so the St. Mark Seattle references in the list are probably Shoreline.


The archdiocese says anyone who has knowledge of sexual abuse or misconduct by a member of the clergy, an employee or volunteer of the Archdiocese of Seattle is urged to call 1-800-446- 7762.

The Seattle Times has an article, which you can find at this link. It includes the search box to find religious at other churches.

In a Q/A fact sheet posted to its website Friday, the Seattle Archdiocese noted if an allegation of sex abuse “has a semblance of truth,” church officials now notify law enforcement and the accused is placed on administrative leave. The church may also conduct its own investigation after the criminal probe concludes. 
“If the allegation is determined to be credible, the accused is removed permanently from ministry,” the fact sheet said. “If the accused is a priest, he is placed on permanent prayer and penance or laicized in a process through the Vatican.”

The largest number were at St. Edward's Seminary (now closed) in Kenmore.

Permanent Prayer and Penance/Laicized.....REALLY! Why do they get away with it! So, if I molest a child, I guess I should say you cannot prosecute me according to the law because I am Catholic Priest.
