Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Fr. Leger Tremblay:

Fr. Leger Tremblay (aka Joseph Cyrias (J.C.) Leger Tremblay) was ordained a priest in 1948, and served in the Diocese of Shreveport. According to media reports, Fr. Tremblay was removed from the priesthood in 1987 following an allegation of “an attempted, unwanted physical advance toward a minor.” The alleged incident occurred while Fr. Tremblay was serving in Shreveport.

In 2005, a plaintiff filed a lawsuit against the Diocese of Alexandria alleging that he was raped by Fr. Tremblay in the summer of 1955 when he was 14 years old. The alleged incident occurred in a car during a trip to Cow Island, LA. The driver of the vehicle, a seminary student named Donald McCarthy, who later became priest, physically assisted in the attack. Afterwards, the plaintiff was silenced by warning and threats. According to the suit, the plaintiff met with Bishop Friend in July 2004, at which time Friend confirmed that the Fr. Tremblay was a known pedophile who had been abusing minors since 1952.The Diocese of Alexandria reached settlements with Fr. Tremblay’s alleged victims in 2004 and 2005.

In February 2019, the Diocese of Alexandria included Fr. Tremblay’s name on its list of “clergy duly incardinated or at one time serving in the Diocese of Alexandria accused of sexual misconduct and abuse of minors by allegations brought by victims or by written testimony.” The list noted multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse of male minors dating back to the 1950s and1960s against Fr. Tremblay. These allegations were brought before the Permanent Review Board in 2003 and 2005.

A review of Fr. Tremblay’s file in 2019 found further evidence of sexual misconduct and abuse of male minors, and the board deemed the evidence as credible. The details of the allegations, including the information about the age/gender of his alleged victim/victims, the nature of the alleged sexual abuse, and Tremblay’s assignments at the time of the alleged abuse are unknown. During his 53 years as a parish priest, Fr. Tremblay served in parishes in Plaucheville, Marksville, Evergreen, Alexandria, Jena, Ferriday, Mansfield, and Shreveport, which was part of the Diocese of Alexandria before the Diocese of Shreveport was founded in 1986.

Fr. Tremblay died in 2002.

  • 2000-2007 Loyola University Maryland (Baltimore, MD)

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Brother Claude Ory:

Br. Claude Ory was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1954, and served in the Diocese of Shreveport. According to media reports, in 1994, the president of the Jesuit College Preparatory School in Dallas fired him as maintenance supervisor, after repeatedly hearing allegations of sexual impropriety, providing alcohol to minors and ultimately sexual assault. He was reassigned to Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL.

In 2000, Brother Ory moved to Baltimore’s Loyola College campus, where he was in charge of managing the Jesuits’ Ignatius House residence hall.

In April 2002, a man accused Brother Ory of sexually assaulting him when he was an 18-year-old recent Jesuit graduate in the mid-1990s. He said he was working on a campus maintenance crew when one day after work, Brother Ory got him drunk. He believed the drink was spiked with an unknown hallucinogen.

They ended up at an off-campus apartment, where he said Brother Ory grabbed his genitals and tried to perform oral sex on him. The man said he ran from the apartment, shirtless and shoeless, and within days reported the incident to Dallas police and school officials. Brother Ory denied drugging or assaulting his accuser but admitted to giving him alcohol. No criminal charges were filed.

In March 2007, Loyola College removed Brother Ory from its Baltimore campus after earlier multiple substantial sexual abuse allegations made against him surfaced. Later that year, he was accused in a lawsuit of repeated molestation of a Jesuit High student from 1974 to 1977, beginning when the boy was age 14. Brother Ory was removed from ministry, and the case was ultimately settled for an undisclosed amount.

As of September 2018, Brother Ory lives in a restricted environment under supervision at a Jesuit residence in Baltimore, MD.

In December 2018, his name appeared publicly on the Jesuits’ Central and Southern list of Jesuits credibly accused of sex abuse of minors. That same month, it also appeared on the Jesuits’ Maryland Province list. After the Jesuits named Brother Ory on the Central and Southern list, the Diocese of Shreveport issued the following statement: “A priest or brother’s assignment in the Diocese of Shreveport does not mean that any allegation stemmed from their assignment here. If there are any credible allegations, the Diocese of Shreveport will be notified of those names with the release of names from the Diocese of Alexandria.”

In February 2019, his name was added to Archdiocese’s of Baltimore’s list of clergy credibly accused of child sex abuse.
