Religious Order: Claretian
Diocese: Archdiocese of Chicago
Woman filed suit 5/05 against the Claretian order alleging they protected Paramo after he abused her from ages 11-15, beginning in 1966. Paramo was assigned to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Chicago at the time. Paramo died in a nursing home in 2004; the woman had confronted him there before his death. Civil suit settled. A 2nd accuser reportedly has also contacted the Plaintiff’s attorney.
