Fr. Henry Trainor first left active ministry in 1993 after he was accused of sexually abusing a child. He was reinstated a few years later by Archdiocese of San Francisco’s Archbishop Levada, but removed in 2002 when prosecutors were given information about the earlier accusation. Fr. Trainor’s status as a priest, whereabouts, and whether he has access to children since 2002 are unknown.
