“We also want to make WCPO aware that, although we have listed clerics in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati with substantiated allegations of child abuse on our website for more than a decade, adding non-incardinated men to the list began in late 2018. This list includes men who have ministered in the AoC who were not incardinated here and who have a substantiated allegation of child sexual abuse. As individual religious orders began to release their own lists we felt it important to provide that information as well. This is an ongoing process that we are working through as we review our files and as additional religious orders release their lists.”

“Recent information received from the Glenmary community and information provided by local Jesuit institutions account for the eleven men [recently added to] our website.”
