A 32-year-old man who now lives in Phoenix is suing a former priest from Resurrection of Our Lord parish.
Robert Brennan was removed from the ministry in 2005 following his inclusion on a grand jury report about sexual abuse by priests. The suit also names Cardinals Justin Rigali and Anthony Bevilacqua and Msgr. William Lynn as defendants.
According to the grand jury report, other priests, parents and parish employees were suspicious of Brennan’s behavior with boys, but Brennan was bounced from parish to parish.
Lynn and the cardinals are also named in suits involving other Northeast priests and teachers.
