Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father John E. Sullivan:

The Diocese of Trenton recently released a list naming each of the priests within their ministry who have credible allegations of child sexual abuse against them. The Diocese included Father John E. Sullivan on that list. While the Diocese of Trenton did state that Sullivan was the subject of multiple credible allegations of abuse, it did not provide any information about the allegations, such as the age/gender of his victims or his assignments at the time of the abuse.

Sullivan passed away in good standing with the Diocese of Trenton, but exactly when he died is not clear.
