Fr. Honorato (Henry) Caboang
Fr. Honorato Caboang was an extern priest from the Philippines. He is believed to have worked in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles from 1978 to 1984. Fr. Caboang and six other priests were accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl. The girl became pregnant and Caboang allegedly conspired with the other priests to keep the assault and pregnancy a secret and sent her to the Philippines where she gave birth, and nearly died. The alleged victim filed a civil lawsuit in 1984 and Fr. Caboang reportedly fled to the Philippines after the lawsuit was filed. Fr. Caboang’s name was included on the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ 2004 list of priests accused of sexual misconduct involving minors. Claims against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Caboang and the other six priests resolved in the fall of 2007. Fr. Caboang may have fled to Montana after he left Los Angeles. It is believed Fr. Caboang died in approximately 2007.
