Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Jeffrey L’Arche:

Fr. Jeffrey L’Arche was ordained for the Missionaries of LaSalette in 1975. In June 2021, L’Arche was placed on administrative leave after the Diocese of Springfield’s Misconduct Commission found a single allegation of sexual abuse of a minor was deemed credible. The alleged abuse occurred sometime between 1976 and 1981.

L’Arche’s status as a priest is currently barred from officiating at sacraments, wearing clerical garb, or presenting himself as a priest.

According to media reports, a subsequent investigation initiated by the LaSalette congregation and conducted by Praesidium Inc. found the allegation to be “highly questionable” and, therefore, not credible. As a result, Father L’Arche, who maintains his innocence, has an asterisk placed next to his name on the Springfield list, indicating the conflicting findings. His name, with an identical asterisk and note, has been added to the Diocese of Albany’s List of Offenders.

Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Cabell B Marbury:

Fr. Cabell B Marbury spent most of his 50-year career as an educator at Bishop Maginn High School in Albany, New York. He served as assistant pastor at three area parishes in the 1960s in the Diocese of Albany. He also taught theology, was bandleader, theater director, guidance counselor and director of guidance, and vice-principal. He stayed at the school as a volunteer chaplain and member of the school board after his 2009 retirement. He died in 2014.

According to media reports, Marbury was investigated for sexual abuse of minors at least three times from 1993 to 2015. The original allegation in 1993, resulted in an “agreement for counseling assistance,” the diocese said. A Diocesan Review Board investigation of an abuse allegation made against him in 2003 found “no reasonable ground” to substantiate the claim. Furthermore, the board had “insufficient information to make a decision” in a 2015 case.

In August 2020, he was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act of sexually abusing a 9-year old boy, from 1974 to 1976, while visiting St. James parish. The abuse allegedly occurred in the sacristy, rectory, and music practice room. 

In October 2020, Marbury’s name appeared on the Diocese of Albany’s list of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse of minors.

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Salvatore Rodino:

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany decided to place Fr. Salvatore Rodino on administrative leave in 2009 after allegations surfaced of him sexually abusing a teen about 27 years prior. This decision was made after the Diocese Review Board had investigated the claims against him and found “reasonable grounds” to believe he had abused the teenager in the 1980s while he was at Blessed Sacrament in Albany, New York.

Rodino denied the allegations, and there was no criminal case pursued due to the statute of limitations expiring. The Diocese of Albany announced that there were similar allegations against Rodino made in the 1990s, but there wasn’t enough sufficient evidence to remove him.

As of recently, he has brought his case of suspension to appeal in Rome. His name also appeared on the list of “Clergy Credibly Accused While Serving in the Diocese of Albany,” which was released in November of 2018.
