Fr. Gustave (Gus) R. Krumm, O.F.M.

 

Ordination: 1982 Notes: Fr. Gustave Krumm was a priest of the Franciscan Order and worked in Reno, Los Angeles, and Portland, as well as in the Diocese of Orange. Fr. Krumm has been accused of sexually abusing at least nine boys from the 1970s to the 1990s, mostly in California parishes. Fr. Krumm has been named in multiple civil lawsuits and was removed from active ministry in 2002 after he admitted to past “indiscretions.” Following the removal, the Franciscans place Fr. Krumm at St. Francis of Assisi parish, without informing the diocese of the accusations against him. He was only at the parish for six weeks before he was removed when the media publicized his whereabouts. In 2011, it was reported that Fr. Krumm was no longer working as a priest and was thought to be working for the State of California and residing in Sacramento. It is believed Fr. Krumm may still reside in Sacramento, but it is unknown whether he has access to children.
