Fr. Henry Hargreaves had assignments in the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Diocese of Oakland. In 2003, Fr. Henry Hargreaves was accused of making “inappropriate advances” towards a woman. Following the accusation, Fr. Hargreaves was placed on leave and sent to Regis Jesuit Community in Spokane, Washington, for evaluation and treatment. Fr. Hargreaves was also named in a 2009 lawsuit filed by 43 Alaskans against the Society of Jesus (a.k.a. the Jesuits). The lawsuit claims that Alaska villages became a worldwide dumping ground for clergy accused of sexual abuse. The lawsuit also accuses Fr. Hargreaves of sexually abusing two boys and raping a 6-year-old boy. The plaintiffs alleged that Jesuit superiors were aware of the sexual abuse but failed to act.
