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.

Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg and throughout Pennsylvania.  The Diocese of Harrisburg filed for federal bankruptcy protection in February 2020. Anyone sexually abused by a priest or employee of the Diocese of Harrisburg may be entitled to file a claim against the Diocese in these bankruptcy proceedings, but very strict filing deadlines apply.  Most victims of abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg will never be able to take action against the Diocese of Harrisburg if they miss this bankruptcy filing deadline, so it is important that you contact us immediately to discuss your potential case.
