Fr. John H. Wadeson, S.V.D.

 

Ordination: 1969

Notes: Fr. John Wadeson has been accused of sexually abusing multiple children. At some point in the late 1990s, Fr. Wadeson was banned from working in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. As of 2014, Fr. Wadeson was believed to be working in Guam in the Archdiocese of Agana. It is believed he had been working there since at least 2000. When news media reported that Fr. Wadeson was working in Guam in 2014, he was removed from the Archdiocese of Agana and it is believed that he returned to the United States and lived in San Francisco. Archbishop Apuron of the Archdiocese of Agana reportedly recommended Fr. Wadeson to the Archdiocese of San Francisco and Fr. Wadeson worked in the Archdiocese of San Francisco in approximately 2014. The Archdiocese of San Francisco removed Fr. Wadeson’s faculties in summer 2014 in the wake of allegations of child sexual abuse. After his removal from the Archdiocese of San Francisco, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles reviewed the case at Fr. Wadeson’s request and found that Fr. Wadeson was “a priest in good standing.” After the Archdiocese of Los Angeles cleared Fr. Wadeson in 2015, he was reinstated to the Archdiocese of Agana. His current whereabouts and access to children are unknown.
