CAMDEN, NJ—The Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden has released the names of 56 priests and one deacon who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors since the diocese was founded in 1937.

All five Catholic dioceses in New Jersey today voluntarily released the names of the clergymen who have admitted to, were found guilty of, and “against whom the evidence was so overwhelming as to be virtually unquestionable” of committing sexual abuse of a minor.

“To be certain, the darkest stain on the Catholic Church in the last century was the sexual abuse of minors by priests,” wrote the Diocese of Camden’s Bishop Dennis J. Sullivan in a statement. “Unfortunately, we have all learned that this ‘filth,’ as Pope Benedict correctly called it, was more pervasive than anyone imagined, or even thought possible.”

Most of the incidents occurred in the 1970s and 1980s, and involved male teenagers, Sullivan said, and that all the names had passed to local law enforcement and the majority of the priests are now dead. Not included in this list are four allegations from the 1960s and 1970s that are being referred to the Diocesan Review Board for a determination as to their credibility.

Sullivan called the 56 priests from the Diocese of Camden a “small percentage” of the more than 800 priests who have served in the diocese since 1937, and the last credible report of abuse of a minor by a priest occurred in 1995.

“This is not in any way to excuse what had happened – and it certainly is not to excuse the failings of bishops and other leaders in the Church at that time,” Sullivan said in a statement.

Sullivan said the Dioceses of New Jersey encourages victims to register with the recently established Independent Victims Compensation Program in anticipation of others coming forward after today’s release of names

The independent program, which is expected to be officially launched in the coming months, will handle submissions, evaluations and settlements of individual claims of sexual abuse of a minor.

In September, the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General established a statewide task force to investigate allegations of sexual abuse by clergy in the Catholic dioceses of New Jersey.

“While this is a positive first step towards transparency and accountability, I hope this spirit of openness continues during the course of our ongoing investigation and in response to our requests for records and information,” said Attorney General Gurbir Grewal in a statement. Grewal said his investigation remains ongoing, and that survivors and others with information to contact its toll-free tip line, 855-363-6548.
