Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Steven Marinucci:

In January 2019, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia received an allegation that Fr. Steven Marinucci sexually abused a minor child (whose age and gender were not released) during the 1970s, while he was assigned to St. Hubert’s High School for Girls and living at St. Bernard and St. Bartholomew.  

On February 3, 2019, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced that it had suspended Marinucci pending a law enforcement investigation of the allegations.  Assuming that the Archdiocese follows its internal policies in such matters, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will conduct its own internal investigation at the same time.  

Marinucci is now 71 years old.  He has been an associate pastor at St. Matthew parish in Philadelphia since 2010.  Prior to that period, he worked from 2001 to 2010 at St. Agatha-St. James Parish, which serves University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University students.  He will remain suspended from active ministry pending the law enforcement and internal investigations.
