Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Diocese of Syracuse
Created on November 26, 1886, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse has been responsible for Catholic children for more than a century. Consisting of seven counties in central New York State, the Diocese oversees 133 parishes, 24 schools, 257 priests and thousands of minors in CCD programs. As of 2018, more than 50 priests, clergy and employees of the Diocese have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct.
In 2018, Church officials announced an independent compensation plan for survivors of sexual abuse within the Diocese of Syracuse. Serving more as a stopgap rather than a long-term solution, this plan is extremely limited in its capacity to help clergy sex abuse survivors find justice. We recommend that survivors pursue healing and justice through the New York Child Victims Act. We urge all survivors to seek legal counsel prior to taking action.
