Fr. Marc Alexander’s inappropriate behavior with women and high school girls date back to at least 1984 when Alexander was a seminarian. Despite this, Bishop Ferrario allowed Fr. Alexander to be ordained a priest of the Diocese of Honolulu in 1985. After holding several positions in the diocese, Bishop Silva promoted Fr. Alexander to Vicar General of the Diocese of Honolulu in 2005. Fr. Alexander’s status in the diocese from 2006 to 2011 is unknown. He notified Bp. Silva of his intent to leave the priesthood. Fr. Alexander then took a prominent position in the Governor’s office and in 2012, he resigned from this position after admitting that he had a sexual relationship with a woman while he was a priest. In April, 2014, Fr. Alexander was named in a civil suit filed by woman who alleged he abused her as a minor while he was at St. John Vianney in Kailua in the 1980s. Fr. Alexander’s current status in the Diocese of Honolulu is unknown.
