Sexual Abuse

Pennsylvania Catholic Church Child Sex Abuse

Attorney General Josh Shapiro says"Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,"

Six dioceses across Pennsylvania were part of a two-year investigation.

The grand jury found:

  • 301 Catholic priests identified as predator priests who sexually abused children while serving in ministry in the church.
  • Detailed accounts of over 1,000 children victimized sexually by predator priests.
  • Priests committed acts of sexual abuse upon children and were routinely shuttled to other parishes - while parishioners were left unaware of sexual predators in their midst.
