Fr. David Stalzer was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Joliet in 1974. In a 1993 civil lawsuit, Fr. Stalzer was accused of child sexual abuse that occurred in 1981 while he worked at St Dennis in Lockport, Illinois. It is believed that Fr. Stalzer returned to active duty later that year under supervision and purportedly with limited contact with children.
