Reading Central Catholic High School, which closed in 2011, was one of the Diocese of Allentown’s largest private schools. It has also been home to a shockingly large number of priests the Diocese of Allentown says have been credibly accused of child sexual abuse since it opened in 1939.
Through our own investigation, we have identified the following priests who have been assigned to Reading Central (as recently as 2010) and who were later accused of child sexual abuse:
- Bernard Flanagan
- James Gaffney (1987-1991)
- Edward Graff (1965-1966)
- Leo Houseknecht (1971-1973)
- Joseph Hulko (1967-1970)
- John Mraz (1975-1980)
- Paul Puza (1977-1978)
- Gregory Uhrig (1976-1978)
- Bruno Tucci (1979-1981)
- Luis Bonilla Margarito (2008-2010)
