Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Paul Worczak:

In April of 2002, a man came forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Father Paul Worczak. The man alleged Fr. Worczak molested him when he was 11-years-old in 1971, at Holy Family in Watertown. The man also claimed that on top of being inappropriately touched by the priest, he also knew of other victims.

Bishop Barbarito kept Father Worczak in active ministry until March of 2003.

The Diocese of Ogdensburg offered to pay for counseling but refused to admit liability, saying that the statute of limitations had passed.

His name appears on the updated version of the Ogdensburg diocese list of priests with credible accusations against them as of November 13th, 2018.
