Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Brendan V. Sullivan:

In 2010, a man accused Father Brendan V. Sullivan of sexually abusing him in 1981, when he was just 14 years old. While the Diocese of Camden has not been notified of any other allegations against the priest, Sullivan acknowledged to The Press of Atlantic City that the incident occurred.

Sullivan claims that the abuse only happened once and knew the victim several years before and afterward, saying he played an advisory role in the relationship.

Sullivan held several leadership roles in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Camden, including one as the Principal of Holy Spirit High School in Absecon from 1973 to 1978.

Sullivan passed away in 2010, but his exact burial location is unknown.
