The incidents were spread over the 166 years of the diocese’s existence, but the majority were perpetrated by priests ordained between the 1930s and the 1970s.

The diocese claim that these priests account for less than five percent of clergy in the borough over its history and that there have been only two cases since reforms were put into place by the church in 2002.

The list comes on the heels of similar releases by other dioceses.
