Cases in Process

Cases Involving Living Diocesan Priests, But Where the Canonical Proceedings Against Those Priests Have Not Yet Been Resolved.

There has not been a final determination either under canon or civil law whether the clergy listed in this section sexually abused a minor. Consistent with the principles of the American justice system, individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Included in this section are the names of priests of the Diocese of Manchester who have been publicly accused of sexually abusing a minor, but the canonical proceedings involving those priests are not yet complete. The priests in this section are prohibited from engaging in public ministry and may not publicly identify themselves as priests.

Priests Accused After Laicization

Cases Involving Priests Accused After They Voluntarily Were Returned to the Lay State for Reasons Other Than Sexual Abuse of a Minor.

There has not been a final determination either under canon or civil law whether the priests listed in this section sexually abused a minor. Consistent with the principles of the American justice system, individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Included in this section are the names of priests of the Diocese of Manchester who had already voluntarily sought and were granted separation from the clerical state (and therefore were no longer priests) before the Diocese of Manchester received a report of an accusation that they had sexually abused a minor. For example, a priest who sought and obtained laicization to marry. Because these priests had already been returned to the lay state, the cases could not be processed canonically, but as with all cases on these lists, the cases were reported to the New Hampshire Department of Justice (Office of the Attorney General).

Deceased Priests

Cases Involving Deceased Priests for Whom Criminal or Canonical Proceedings Were Not Completed.

There has not been a final determination either under canon or civil law whether the priests listed in this section sexually abused a minor. Consistent with the principles of the American justice system, individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

This section includes the names of deceased priests of the Diocese of Manchester who were accused of sexually abusing a minor for whom criminal or canonical proceedings were not completed, in many cases, because either the allegation(s) were received only after the priest's death or the priest died before the conclusion of the proceedings. This list does not contain the names of priests who were identified in reports that were investigated and where the investigation concluded that there was insufficient evidence to establish the probability that the accused priest had sexually abused a minor. This list likewise does not include priests who were accused of sexually abusing a minor if a single report has been made after the death of the priest and the report was not investigated; this may occur, for example, when a report is anonymous or when a victim declines to cooperate with an investigation. As with all cases on these lists, the cases were nevertheless reported to the New Hampshire Department of Justice.

Religious Orders/Other

Cases Involving Priests of Religious Orders, Eparchies, or Other Dioceses Who Were Assigned by the Bishop of Manchester to Ministry.

This section includes the names of priests who were assigned by the Bishop of Manchester to ministry (for example, in a parish) but who were not incardinated in the Diocese of Manchester, including priests of religious orders, eparchies, or other dioceses or archdioceses, and about whom the Diocese received an accusation of sexual abuse of a minor. Because they were not incardinated in the Diocese of Manchester, the Diocese was unable to process the cases canonically and reported the accusation to the priest’s religious superior, eparch, or bishop to process the case. The Diocese also ensured that the cases were reported to the New Hampshire Department of Justice. The priests in this section no longer are in ministry in the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese has decided to list these names in the interest of transparency and healing.
