Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Diocese of Brooklyn
Comprised of approximately 1.5 million Catholics and nearly 200 parishes, the Diocese of Brooklyn covers the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. As of 2018, more than 60 predator priests, clergy and employees of the diocese have been publicly accused of child sex abuse.
In response to the growing number of accusations, Church officials announced in 2017 an independent compensation plan for survivors of sexual abuse within the Diocese of Brooklyn. Serving more as a stopgap rather than a long-term solution, this plan is 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.
