Jesuits West Province Releases List Of Names Of Priests Accused Of Sexual Abuse

Last Friday, Jesuits West Province, the Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers representing a service area of 10 Western states including Arizona, released a “ List of Jesuits from Jesuits West Province with Credible Claims of Sexual Abuse of a Minor or Vulnerable Adult.”

The list contains names of Jesuits who either worked in Jesuit West provinces or those who can be tied back to their time in Jesuit West territory. Eight of those names were men who once worked at Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix.

David Gibson has spent a long time covering the Catholic Church. He’s now director of the Center of Religion and Culture at Fordham University, a Jesuit University in New York City, and he joined The Show to talk about it.
