Fr. John Klebie is alleged to have sexually abused several children at or near Camp Scully in North Greenbush from approximately 1958 to 1970. At some point, Fr. Klebie changed his last name from Klebauskas to Klebie. Fr. Klebie was removed from ministry in the 1970s after claims that he was abusing the campers were deemed credible. Additional child sexual abuse claims were made to the Albany diocese in 2003 and 2004. Fr. Klebie was included on the Diocese of Albany’s lists of “Clergy Credibly Accused While Serving in the Diocese of Albany.”
