Franciscans from the Province of St. Barbara Releases Names of Friars Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor Since 1950

Today the Franciscan Friars of the Province of St. Barbara releases a list with the names of friars with credible accusations of sexual abuse against them going back to 1950. The list is being published as part of our continuous commitment to transparency and accountability. We are determined to demonstrate, through this action, that we are committed to helping survivors and their families heal. The victims, their families, and the People of God deserve transparency.

We are aware this may bring back painful memories to victims and their families. To all those victimized by a friar, I profoundly apologize personally and in the name of all friars. To the families, supporters and advocates of those victimized, I would also like to apologize to you for the pain caused to your loved ones. There is nothing I can say that will change the past. It is inconceivable to me that a friar could abuse the trust of a child, but this is exactly what happened.

Established in 1915, the Province of St. Barbara has a presence today in the States of Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington. We have a variety of ministries including parishes, retreat centers, social center dining rooms, and are also involved in education. Many brothers work in specialized ministries in service to the poor and marginalized. While the vast majority of Franciscans are not on the list, it is important that parents, and society in general, feel that their children are safe in our ministries, parishes and other places where friars live and work. We are committed to the safety and welfare of those most vulnerable in society.

Heightened public awareness of the tragedy of sexual abuse of minors in our Province came in the early 1990s from St. Anthony’s, our minor seminary in Santa Barbara. Since those early days, the friars have worked to help with the healing process for those who were abused and for the protection of children. The Franciscans have a zero-tolerance policy for those with credible accusations, and no Franciscan with a credible accusation is allowed to minister in any way.

We have reviewed our files and have included names of those with credible accusations involving minors. An allegation is deemed “credible” if there is a preponderance of evidence that the allegation is more likely true than not after investigation.

It should be noted that in each evaluation of an accusation the benefit of any doubt was given to the victim. It is our belief that almost all victims are trustworthy and telling the truth. In almost all cases if there was an allegation made directly by a named minor(s), or multiple allegations over time with no victim named, the friar’s name is included in the list even when other factors might not support the allegation(s).

While every effort was made for us to have an accurate and complete list, we realize that an offender’s name might have been incorrectly omitted from this list. If you are aware of any discrepancies, please contact our Victims Assistance Coordinator, Angelica Jochim at 1-800-770-8013 or and we will update the list as needed. Likewise, in our attempt to be transparent, we are having external professionals review all our files so that if additional credible accusations are uncovered, their names will also be added to the list.

In releasing these names, I hope that in some small way it helps to bring healing to the victims and their families. I again ask for forgiveness from them and also from the People of God. Let us put our trust and hope in the Lord, who brings light to the darkness and hope to all.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Father David Gaa
Provincial Minister
Province of St. Barbara
