Note: PA AG's 3/1/16 Grand Jury Report calls Msgr. McCaa "a monster" in his sexual abuse of boys, ages 8-15, at Holy Name parish and school in Edensburg, 1961-85. At least 15 victims, maybe hundreds; at least two have committed suicide. McCaa would ensure altar boys did not wear pants under their cassocks so he could reach under to touch and squeeze their genitals or push his finger into their anuses. He grabbed one victim's penis and said, in front of other boys, "If you ever use this, I'm going to rip it off." Abuse usually in the sacristy, sometimes the rectory. Also during confession. Bishop Hogan knew by 1985. Angry parent contacted DA's office, per instruction of a child care official. Hogan met with Assistant DAs re danger public would find out. DAs agreed to meet with parents group to diffuse anger. Also per the plan, McCaa was sent to "treatment," then assigned to hospital chaplaincy in WV with Hogan's "glowing recommendation." "Retired" 1993, died 2007. Subject of multiple lawsuits.
