Diocese of Rockville Centre
Summary of Abuse Allegations Against Priest Q:
In 2003, the Suffolk County Grand Jury released a report of accusations made against 23 Roman Catholic priests in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The priests, whose names were omitted, were identified only by letters in the report. According to the report, the identity of Priest Q is believed to be unknown.
It stated that in the early 1990s, the supervising pastor of this priest found pornographic tapes in his room. Some of the images appeared to be old. Others, however, were as recent as one year prior to the
discovery of the tape and included “sexual activity with an underage boy apparently from the parish.” The pastor reported his findings to to the highest level of the Diocese. Priest Q was sent for evaluation and treatment. According to the from the evaluation report, the priest admitted to abusing a 15-year-old boy in the rectory, but officials never reported the incident to the police. Additionally, “no attempt was made by the diocese to locate and assist the victim.”
