Fr. Benedict Van Der Putten (Society of St. John) – Diocese of Scranton

Father Benedict Van Der Putten
Diocese of Scranton

Benedict Van Der Putten Horowitz Law
Ordained: 1992
Laicized: 2005

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Benedict Van Der Putten:

Father Benedict van der Putten was a member of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, a schismatic order that is not recognized by Roman Catholic Church. He was a retreat master at St. Aloysius Retreat House in Los Gatos, California, from 1995 to 2000.  While in Los Gatos, California, around 2000, van der Putten is accused of engaging in “indecent acts” with a 15-year-old girl, and attempting the same with another girl, age 17.

He was immediately sent to the International Headquarters for the Society of St. Pius X in Switzerland and was sent on a sabbatical to the island monastery in Orkney Islands of Scotland.  He was later expelled from the Society.

In 2001, he became a member of the Society of Saint John, comprised almost entirely of priests leaving the Society of St. Pius X to seek reinstatement with the Roman Catholic Church.  He ultimately sought to be incardinated into the Diocese of Scranton as a Roman Catholic priest, and developed relationships with high-level Chancery officials.

The Diocese of Scranton was ultimately satisfied that van der Putten would make a good addition to its clergy roster and sought a correction of his Canonical status with Rome. When Bishop James Timlin sent the paperwork to Rome for van der Putten to be “regularized” with the Diocese of Scranton, Rome reported the sexual abuse allegation made by the Society of St. Pius X.

According to media reports, in 2002, van der Putten was interviewed by Timlin and other Diocesan administrators. Van der Putten admitted involvement with a 16-year-old girl. He advised he kissed her and caressed her breast. He also exposed his genitalia. Van der Putten claimed there was “nothing erotic” about the encounter, and insisted it was merely his attempt “to build trust” between himself and the child.

Timlin sent van der Putten for evaluation at the Southdown Institute in Ontario, a notorious facility treating pedophile priests.  Upon his admission, he admitted to recently fondling a young woman he met while on Christmas vacation in 2001. The Southdown Institute ultimately found that van der Putten had “predatory behavior.”

Despite Severed Ties, van der Putten Continues Ministry

In 2002, the Diocese received a call from a woman, who reported van der Putten molested her 18-year-old daughter in December 2001. This woman tracked van der Putten to Sacramento, California where he was giving liturgy.

The Diocese noted in a report documenting the woman’s complaint that van der Putten had a “Celebret” from the Congregation in Rome, Ecclesiae Dei, which provided him, with legitimacy, to engage in liturgy.

In 2002, Timlin advised van der Putten he would not be given faculties with the Diocese of Scranton. In December 2003, a memorandum went out to all bishops by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Office of the General Secretary advising that van der Putten was a former member of the Society of St. Pius X and that he did not have faculties in the Diocese of Scranton due to admitted sexual misconduct.

For some time, Van der Putten used a website to advertise his availability for conferences, retreats and youth camps while claiming he is a priest in good standing, which he was not. He was also asking for Mass stipends.

Van der Putten, who now goes by “Ben Vanderputten” is believed to be residing in Shawnee, Oklahoma.  According to his Facebook page, he is now raising several children as a single father, including several girls.

Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity (Society of St. John) – Diocese of Scranton

Father Carlos Urrutigoity
Diocese of Scranton

Carlos Urrutigoity Horowitz LawCarlos Urrutigoity Horowitz Law
Ordained: 1991
Removed from active ministry: 2002

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Carlos Urrutigoity:

In an effort to return disaffected members of the Society of St. Pius X to membership in the Catholic Church, Bishop James C. Timlin on the Diocese of Scranton interviewed a group of men who claimed that they were seeking to return to the true church. The group of men called themselves the Society of St. John (SSJ) and included among them was one of the order’s founders, Father Carlos Urrutigoity and Fr. Eric Ensley.

There were no background checks or reviews of their seminary or priestly formation records at that time. Father Urrutigoity and Father Ensey were subsequently incardinated into the Diocese.

On September 15, 2001, Timlin was informed that Urrutigoity had made it a practice to sleep in the same bed with boys and young men. Timlin immediately questioned Urrutigoity who denied any immoral behavior.

Urrutigoity did admit that there may have been occasions when overcrowded conditions prompted shared sleeping arrangements. Timlin ordered Urrutigoity to stop the behavior and the allegation was brought before the Diocesan Review Board.

Because there was no specific complaint, however, the Board believed that Timlin’s instruction was all that could be done.

On January 12, 2002, Timlin received correspondence from a representative of the Pope.  Attached was a letter written by a victim’s father accusing Urrutigoity of sexual misconduct of his minor child. These allegations were investigated by the Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office, however, because the statute of limitations had expired, no criminal charges were filed against Urrutigoity.

The Diocese of Scranton was ultimately sued by the minor victim, who received a settlement.

Urrutigoity was sent for clinical assessments and removed from active ministry, pending the outcome of the Diocese of Scranton’s investigation.

Urrutigoity Picks Up Ministering in Paraguay

On November 19, 2004, Bishop Martino issued a decree suppressing the SSJ. While awaiting the Diocesan investigation, Urrutigoity requested to be excardinated from the Diocese of Scranton so they could be incardinated in a Paraguay diocese with the hopes of re-establishing the SSJ in South America.

The request was initially denied. In 2008, however, Urrutigoity was excardinated from the Diocese of Scranton and incardinated into the Diocese of Ciudad del Este, Paraguay. The Bishop of the Diocese of Ciudad del Este praised Urrutigoity at the time of his incardination, citing a letter written by Timlin wherein Timlin gave a glowing opinion of the SSJ and Urrutigoity.

The SSJ was re-created in Paraguay and Urrutigoity was promoted to second in charge of the Order. In 2014, the Vatican initiated an investigation into Urrutigoity and the Bishop of Ciudad del Este. Urrutigoity was removed as second in command and the Bishop was suspended.

The Vatican claims the removal was due to politics and was not related to past allegations of abuse.

Urrutigoity’s last known location was in Paraguay in 2014. There are no public records showing his current whereabouts.

  • 1979-1985: St. Eugene, Bedford, OH
  • 1985-1990: St. Michael’s, Akron, OH

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father John Rebovich:

Father John Rebovich was an Oblates of St. Joseph priest in the Dioceses of Scranton and Harrisburg Pennsylvania before becoming a Byzantine Catholic priest. During his time as a priest, Rebovich has had multiple allegations of sexual abuse against a minor.

In 1990, Rebovich was accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old altar boy at St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church in Dunellen, New Jersey in 1975. Rebovich’s accuser is said to have told church officials in 1978, who promised to investigate. It appears that Rebovich was transferred from the parish to seminary the year that the 1978 complaint was filed.

The First Lawsuit is Filed

Rebovich was removed from St. Michael’s in April 1990 when he was accused in a lawsuit of having raped and molesting an altar boy in 1980 at St. Eugene. The victim said the first incident occurred on Good Friday 1980 after Rebovich took him to dinner and persuaded him to spend the night at the rectory. He said he awoke in the night to find Rebovich performing oral sex on him.

The second incident took place in August 1980, after Rebovich supplied him with mixed drinks and took him back to the rectory in a drunken state. That time, the victim alleged, he awoke to find himself naked in the pastor’s bed.

The lawsuit also stated that the victim met with diocesan officials in 1984 and agreed not to press charges if the church removed Rebovich as pastor of St. Eugene, forced him into treatment and banned him from contact with boys. The diocese removed Rebovich from St. Eugene, but less than a month later reinstated him and that same year assigned him to St. Michael.

The Second Lawsuit is Filed

Rebovich was accused again in a 2002 lawsuit of having sexually abused three boys at St. Eugene’s, from 1978 to 1981, when the boys were 15 to 17 years old.

In interviews, the men said Rebovich lured teens to the rectory by inviting them over to drink alcohol. They said the offer was difficult to resist, and that the priest was a “cool” guy for allowing them to hang out and play cards.

That man said Rebovich asked him to clean up after bingo for $50. The priest also let it be known the cleanup crew could help themselves to beer.

Another man said Rebovich would have lots of teens hanging around his house. One by one, the boys would leave. On two occasions when he had been drinking and ended up alone with Rebovich, the priest raped him, he said.

According to Diocese records, Rebovich passed away, but the year and his last known location are unknown.

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Neil P. McLaughlin:

Father Neil McLaughlin was a Jesuit priest from the Maryland Province of the Society
of Jesus, which had a Jesuit Community within the Diocese of Scranton.

When Bishop Martino was installed as the Bishop of Scranton, he directed that a comprehensive review of all allegations of sexual misconduct involving clerics of the Diocese of Scranton be conducted. A concern about McLaughlin was discovered.

In 2002, McLaughlin’s niece alleged that she was touched in an inappropriate manner by priest as a child. While in therapy, the niece had recovered a memory that in 1959, McLaughlin hugged her in a sexual manner at his ordination.  According to media reports, officials at the Maryland Province of the Jesuits first became aware of the allegation in 1990.  In 2010, the allegations were deemed “credible” during an internal review by the Jesuits.

McLaughlin was sent for an evaluation and was diagnosed as a latent pedophile in 2002. The Jesuits recently sent McLaughlin for another evaluation; the professional conducting that evaluation purportedly opined that there was an error in the first evaluation and that McLaughlin was not a threat to children.

In 2006, the Diocese of Scranton received notification from the Jesuit community that it was recommended that McLaughlin continue ministry but that it be restricted to ministry that did not involve children.

In 2007, McLaughlin was assigned to the Jesuit Provincial Community in Baltimore, Maryland. McLaughlin was notified by the Diocese of Scranton that his faculties were withdrawn.

In 2008, an adult female reported to the Jesuits that McLaughlin touched her in an inappropriate manner in 1963 when she was 10 years old. The allegation was reported to the local police department in Maryland but wasn’t made public until 2010.

According to the most recent records, McLaughlin was last living at Colombiere Jesuit Community in Baltimore, Maryland.  He is 91 years old.

Fr. Alex J. Hazzouri (Society of St. John) – Diocese of Scranton

Father Alex J. Hazzouri
Diocese of Scranton

Alex J. Hazzouri Horowitz Law
Ordained: 1957
Death: 2018

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Alex J. Hazzouri:

In 2002, a woman filed suit against the Diocese of Scranton, Villa St. Joseph and Father Alex J. Hazzouri for inappropriate touching when she was a minor.

In August 1996, the female victim, then 14 years old, began working as a dining room and kitchen server at Villa St. Joseph. As part of her duties, she would wait on tables, serving food to the retired priests.

She alleged that a few months after beginning her job, Hazzouri,  a retired priest residing at Villa St. Joseph, began inappropriately touching her when she was waiting on his table.

In approximately May or June of 1997, the victim informed her supervisor, Annette Balint, about the alleged touchings. By the time she told her parents about the priest’s alleged actions in July 1997, Balint had spoken with the rector at Villa St. Joseph, Bishop John M Dougherty.

Balint and Bishop Dougherty subsequently spoke with the victim’s co-workers and Hazzouri, all of whom denied any inappropriate behavior had occurred. Based on the investigation, Bishop Dougherty recommended to the victim that she simply not serve Hazzouri’s table anymore and reassured her parents that steps were being taken to ensure that she was safe.

Once the victim stopped serving the priest, the alleged touching ceased, even after she voluntarily resumed serving the priest’s table some months later.

In December 1997, the victim informed her parents that she again felt intimidated by Hazzouri due to the fact that he had approached her and told her that he was worried about what she had stated about him.

The victim’s mother subsequently met with Bishop Dougherty to express her concerns about her daughter’s safety. During the course of this meeting, Bishop Dougherty suggested that if the child was not comfortable working at Villa St. Joseph, she could resign. The victim resigned her position and later filed a lawsuit against the Diocese.

Hazzouri died in 2018 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
