Four Priests With County Ties Named In Abuse Report

The Roman Catholic bishops of Texas released the names of nearly 300 priests accused of child sexual abuse last week. Those names includes four priests who served at parishes in Fayette County.

The information about the four priests listed below comes from the reports issued by the bishops last Thursday and documents included in a national database of accused priests maintained by the BishopAccountability.org website. We also consulted local newspaper archives, wedding announcements and obituaries to establish dates when the priests served the parishes here.
