Fr. John Gordon (Gordon J.) Pillon

 

Ordination: 1979

Notes: Fr. Pillon was a pastor in the Diocese of Peoria when he was asked to step down following allegations of sexual abuse. A lawsuit filed in 2009 accuses Fr. Pillon of repeatedly sexually abusing a boy approximately 25 years earlier, when the boy was 15 to 18 years old. According to the lawsuit, at the time of abuse, Fr. Pillon was assigned to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in La Habra, California. The plaintiff is a former pastor and was allegedly forced out of the priesthood in 2006 after reporting Fr. Pillon’s abuse to the Diocese of Peoria. Fr. Pillon was last reported to be working at the University of North Virginia campus in Prague, Czech Republic, but his current whereabouts, status as a priest, and access to children are unknown.
