Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Edward Kuczynski:

Father Edward Kuczynski was named in a 2006 civil lawsuit that alleged he sexually abused a young boy at St. Peter grammar school from 2002-2005.  According to the suit, the boy told the school principal about the abuse, and she dismissed him by telling him nothing happened. The suit says that the abuse continued until the boy’s mother removed him from the school.  

The incidents were reported to police, who did not charge Kuczynski with any crimes.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia conducted a cursory interview into the allegations and determined that they were not credible.  Kuczynski was deemed suitable for a return to ministry.

Kuczynski remains in active ministry in Philadelphia as pastor of St. Philip Neri parish.
