On August 14, 2018, Pennsylvania’s Attorney General released a long-awaited grand jury report that showed top Roman Catholic leaders in Pennsylvania covered up decades of child sex abuse involving 300 priests and more than 1,000 victims. The grand jury report covered six Pennsylvania Catholic Diocese: the Diocese of Harrisburg, the Diocese of Pittsburgh, the Diocese of Greensburg, the Dioceses of Erie, the Diocese of Scranton, and the Diocese of Allentown.

With each Diocese, the grand jury determined that bishops and other Catholic officials misused their power and enabled the victimization of children on a grand scale. The report describes Catholic officials’ “playbook for concealing the truth” used to cover up 70 years of child sexual abuse by 300 Roman Catholic priests.

Specifically, in the Greensburg Diocese, the grand jury report identifies the following priests as potential abusers:

  • Dennis Dellamalva
  • Greg Flohr
  • Charles Guth
  • Francis Lesniak
  • Raymond Lukac
  • Henry J. Marcinek
  • Robert Moslener
  • Fabian G. Oris
  • Edmond A. Parrakow
  • George R. Pierce
  • Gregory F. Premoshis
  • Thomas W. Rogers
  • Leonard Sanesi
  • Roger A. Sinclair
  • Joseph L. Sredzinski
  • John T. Sweeney
  • Joseph Anthony Tamikowski
