Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of New York
The Archdiocese of New York, with more than 2.5 million members, is the second-largest Catholic diocese in the country. As of 2018, approximately 84 predator priests and clergy within the Archdiocese have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct, with hundreds more suspected.
In 2016, Church officials announced an independent compensation plan for survivors of sexual abuse within the Archdiocese of New York. Serving more as a stopgap rather than a long-term solution, this plan is currently in its late stages and extremely limited in its capacity to help clergy sex abuse survivors find justice. We recommend that survivors pursue healing and justice through the New York Child Victims Act and urge you to contact legal counsel prior to taking action.
