Diocese to name 2 more accused priests

October 5, 2018

The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend has received credible allegations of sexual abuse of minors against two additional priests and will release their names on Tuesday.

Stephanie Patka, the diocese’s spokeswoman, made the announcement this afternoon.

At least one additional allegation against a priest already named has surfaced and will be included Tuesday, she said.

Patka said she did not yet have access to the names or more details. The additions would bring to 20 the number of credibly accused priests and deacons.

The information will be published on the diocese’s website at www.diocesefwsb, she said.
