A regularly updated list of priests, ministers or any clergymen caught or convicted of sexually abusing children in some way, shape, or form. Priests who have been merely accused of sex abuse are not included in this list. Only priests legally convicted for sexual abuse of a minor or priests caught having any kind of sexual relations with children are included on this list along with their crimes and why they were convicted.

Catholic sex abuse is, unfortunately, a very common crime around the world due to the immense amount of trust placed in men of "God", so the more you can raise awareness of the reality of this danger the better. There is nothing "okay" about Christian sexual abuse, so here are the names of Christian clergymen who have betrayed their flock and their faith.

Who are the Catholic priests convicted of sexual abuse? Take a look at this list of famous and not-so-famous priests accused of abuse, and recognize these for abusive hypocrites for the heinous criminals they are.
