This report contains the names of diocesan priests, religious order priests, and other religious clerics associated with the Archdiocese of Denver, Diocese of Colorado Springs and Diocese of Pueblo, including those who were assigned within or working in the geographic boundaries of the Archdiocese or Dioceses, who have been accused of sexual misconduct.

Although pursuing the Colorado ICP might be the right decision for some survivors, we believe there is a better way to protect children and find justice. These compensation programs only offer compensation; they do not require full transparency regarding clergy abuse and how these dioceses protected perpetrator priests, as litigation likely would. Nor do they require the dioceses to implement child protection protocols, as litigation likely would. In addition, survivors of child sexual abuse by members of religious orders, priests from other dioceses or lay persons are not eligible to participate in the programs. And survivors who accept compensation through the programs waive their right to file a lawsuit against the dioceses in the future.
Details of the compensation programs can be found here.
Before making a decision concerning such serious and sensitive matters, we encourage all survivors of child sexual abuse by priests, other Catholic clergy, or employees of the Catholic Church in Colorado to consult with legal counsel before proceeding with a claim.
