His removal came after a Diocesan Review Board found “reasonable grounds” to believe he sexually abused a male teenager at Blessed Sacrament in Albany in the 1980s. Fr. Rodino is listed on the Diocese of Albany’s lists of “Clergy Credibly Accused While Serving in the Diocese of Albany.” Fr. Rodino’s current status as a priest, his whereabouts, and access to children are unknown.
