Summary of Allegations Against Msgr. Francis Hudak:

Msgr. Francis Hudak was not identified or discussed in the 2018 grand jury report.  His name was, however, included on the list of accused priests published by the Diocese of Harrisburg in August 2018.  Unfortunately, very little information was provided by the Diocese of Harrisburg relating to the gender or age of the victim(s), the dates of the alleged abuse, or the context/details of the abuse.

All the Diocese of Harrisburg has disclosed is that the allegation(s) relating to Hudak was first reported to the Diocese after his death in 2005.
