Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father George Kayser:

Father George Kayser was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Brooklyn in 1948.  According to media reports, his name was included in the Diocese of Brooklyn’s 2019 “List of Diocesan Clergy for Whom the Diocese Received Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor,” in the subsection “Clergy Members of the Diocese of Brooklyn With Credible Allegations: Credibility Deemed by Diocesan Review Board Determination and/or Admission on Behalf of the Cleric.” The details of the sexual abuse allegations, including when and where the abuse occurred, are unknown. Father Kayser’s status as a priest, his whereabouts, and whether he had access to children from his last known assignment in 1960 until his death are unknown.

“In April 2021 the official committee of abuse survivors in the Diocese’s bankruptcy identified Father Kayser as a person accused of abuse who has some connection to the  Rockville Centre Diocese.” According to the committee, the people on this list, “…have been accused of committing sexual abuse. These people have served within the territorial limits of the  Diocese of Rockville Centre.  A religious order and/or diocese outside of the Diocese of Rockville Centre found sexual abuse accusations against these people to be credible or sexual abuse lawsuits have been filed against these people.”
