Msgr. Michael Kurz: Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Msgr. Michael Kurz

Ordained, 1975

Notes: Msgr. Michael Kurz was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Pueblo. In 2008, Msgr. Kurz was named in a lawsuit, alleging he had sexually abused a minor boy in approximately 1976 while he worked at Christ the King in Pueblo, Colorado. Following the allegation, the Diocesan Review Board purportedly conducted an investigation and determined the allegation to be unfounded and false. No punitive action was taken against Msgr. Kurz. After allegations of sexual abuse arose involving Msgr. Kurz, at least two settlements were reached with two survivors.
