Those listed in the report are as follows:

Clergy criminally charged:

  • Paul J. Blancard

  • Harold McIntee, OMI
  • Alfred Frank Louis Sasso

Clergy with lawsuits settled:

Some of those charged are in cases dating back as far as the 1950s and with victims as young as six. The review also found that at least three priests had fathered children at some point.
