Among the Most Dangerous Dioceses in the Country
Since the release of the Anderson Report in February 2019, seven survivors of sexual abuse by Msgr. Paddack have come forward, including Joseph Caramanno who spoke publicly at a press event in New York City on July 16, 2019, to report their abuse to the Archdiocese.
In approximately 2014, the Archdiocese received a report that Msgr. Paddack sexually abused a minor in approximately 1994. Until summer of 2019, Msgr. Paddack had worked as a priest in the Archdiocese of New York for 35 years. Paddack resigned his post on July 7, 2019. His current whereabouts and whether he has access to children are unknown.
