Archbishop Thomas Rodi of the Archdiocese of Mobile today released the names of 28 former clergymen or people in service to the church who were credibly accused of child sex abuse over the past seven decades.

The list and an accompanying note do not acknowledge or report any cooperation with civil authorities prior to 2003, when official church policies were adopted to investigate and report such accusations. However, Rodi noted “there were a variety of ways in which accusations were received and investigated” and said the list released today has been shared with both the Office of the State Attorney General and the Mobile County District Attorney. Yet, of the 28 people named, 16 are deceased and in previous reporting on the subject, law enforcement officials indicated they would only investigate new claims of abuse.

The list also fails to disclose details of each report, including how the accusations were investigated by the church and if any administrative penalties were assessed or actions taken to prevent the accused men from having contact with other children after the accusations were made.

“It is my prayer that this will not re-traumatize anyone but will assist in the healing for which victims desperately long,” Rodi wrote. “I also pray that it will help all the people of the Church, and of the broader community, to know that the Archdiocese of Mobile is not allowing anyone to minister in our archdiocese who has credible accusations of sexual misconduct with minors.”

Rodi also noted that “even though one abuser is far too many, these accusations of abuse involve approximately 2 percent of the 457 archdiocesan priests who have served in the archdiocese since 1950” and concluded with an apology and request for forgiveness for the “devastating harm done by clerics and religious who have abused the little ones.”

Rodi released two separate lists, one that includes priests and deacons in the Archdiocese of Mobile and the other includes priests and brothers from various religious orders.
