Pa. Catholic church sex abuse report: Look up the churches where hundreds of accused priests worked and lived

Search more than 1,000 churches, parishes and organizations where accused clergy from Pennsylvania worked and lived.

A state grand jury report released last week revealed decades of allegations of child sex abuse at the hands of more than 300 priests in six Pennsylvania Roman Catholic dioceses.

The report presented accounts by victims and actions taken by church officials, and detailed the parish assignments of more than 250 of the accused clergy. This search tool catalogs the thousands of records detailing where they lived and worked in the dioceses, including some in the Philadelphia region.

Names of more than a dozen accused clergy have been suppressed from a redacted report, pending hearings before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. For a handful of other accused priests, the report lacked thorough historical records.
