Fr. John Joseph Brady

Diocese:  Archdiocese of New York

Notes:  In a 2004 lawsuit, one woman alleges that Brady, a former pastor at St. Catherine’s of Genoa Parish and School in Manhattan, sexually abused her every Sunday after services and on trips to Bear Mountain from 1944 to 1948, beginning when she was 7 years old. She alleges that her sister and a group of other young girls were also abused by Brady. Her claims are included in a civil suit filed in February 2004 by herself and 14 other victims of abuse against a total of 11 priests. Brady is reportedly deceased.
