Fr. Donald J. Sella

Diocese: Diocese of Paterson


Allegations against Sella were made in 1/04 civil suit. At least one claim of sexual abuse of a child was settled in 2/05 as part of a $5M settlement of claims by 27 individuals against several priests. Sella was still serving in a parish in 2005 because “the diocese found no evidence of wrongdoing during an internal review” and he is still active priest as of 2/08.
