Fr. Joseph Schuck was ordained in the Diocese of Brooklyn. In 2003, Fr. Schuck was placed on leave after he was accused of sexually abusing a minor when he was working at St. Francis of Assisi in Long Island City, New York, in the late 1950s. The allegations were deemed credible and Fr. Schuck was removed from ministry in 2003. Fr. Schuck was named on the Diocese of Brooklyn’s 2019 “List of Diocesan Clergy for Whom the Diocese Received Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor,” in the subsection “Clergy Members of the Diocese of Brooklyn with Credible Allegations: Credibility Deemed by Diocesan Review Board Determination and/or Admission on Behalf of the Cleric.”
