Je­suits say 13 ac­cused abusers worked in Colorado

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

A list of Je­suits found to have cred­i­ble al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual abuse made against them in­cludes 13 priests who worked in Colorado, two of whom also worked in Wy­oming.

Eight of the priests in­cluded on the list re­leased by the Catholic or­der’s U.S. Cen­tral and South­ern Prov­ince Fri­day worked at Regis Je­suit High School, once lo­cated in Den­ver but now in Aurora. Two also served at St. Stephen’s Mis­sion on Wy­oming’s Wind River Reser­va­tion.

The priests had a num­ber of as­sign­ments, and the list doesn’t spec­ify where the al­leged abuse hap­pened. How­ever, in a let­ter to the Regis Je­suit High School com­mu­nity, pres­i­dent David Card said two had al­le­ga­tions re­lated to stu­dents at the school.

Seven of the priests have died. The oth­ers have ei­ther left the or­der or been re­moved from min­istry.

The cases date back as far as the 1950s.
