Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Michael Salamone:

According to media reports, in 1994, a man alleged that Father Michael Salamone had repeatedly sexually abused him for one year when he was a 14-year-old boy in the early 1980s. He was permanently removed from ministry in April 2002, and retired in 2003.

In November 2017, the alleged victim received a settlement offer from the diocese’s Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP).
