Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Sister De Neri:

Sister De Neri, RSM, is listed on the Diocese of Rockville Centre’s March 2021 List of Clergy Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor. The list states that the alleged sexual abuse occurred while De Neri worked at St. Joseph in Babylon, NY. The details of the sexual abuse allegations, including the victim’s age/gender and when the abuse took place, are unknown. 

In the past, church leaders have treated misconduct by diocesan priests as separate from allegations against members of religious orders, both male and female. The lack of awareness about sexual abuse by nuns makes it that much harder for victims to come forward. Their claims have taken less of a priority in the broader examination of child sexual abuse cases by male Catholic leaders. As such, there has been a delay for struggling victims to get the necessary psychological treatment needed to heal from such a devastating childhood trauma.
