Yakima Diocese Abuse Disclosure List
(Most recent update March 14, 2023)
July 10, 2019
This Disclosure List of Clergy (priests and deacons) for whom allegations of sexual abuse of a minor during their service in the Diocese of Yakima have been substantiated, is being published as part of the Diocese of Yakima’s ongoing commitment to transparency and to encourage persons sexually abused by clergy or by anyone working on behalf of the Church to come forward. The individuals named in this list have served in the Diocese of Yakima, as noted. Locations of known assignments are listed, however this does not mean that there are allegations of abuse at each place. Despite our best efforts to assure that this information is accurate and complete, we know that this list may include errors or be incomplete. It will be updated as new information is received or identified, or allegations are substantiated after investigation and review in consultation with our Diocesan Lay Advisory Board. Besides the disclosure list, the Disclosure FAQ document contains helpful information. Anyone sexually abused by clergy or by anyone working on behalf of the Church is encouraged to contact the Yakima Diocese Victim Assistance Coordinator at 1-888-276-4490, or local law enforcement.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Rev. Joseph J. Tyson, Bishop of Yakima
