Francis J. Reynolds

Father Francis J. Reynolds was ordained in 1955 and between then and 1988, spent time in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis at parishes in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Golden Valley and Buffalo, Minnesota.

In 1991, a lawsuit accused Father Reynolds of abusing a girl who was a parishioner and student at St. Francis Xavier in Buffalo, Minnesota. The sexual abuse allegedly occurred between about 1972 and 1984. In 1988, Reynolds retired and died the same year.
