Notes:  A religious educator learned during a church retreat in 1994 that a 14 yr old former alter boy was being “groomed” for sex by Mundy and she reported the matter to Msgr. Alan Placa (later accused of abuse himself). The alleged victim claimed that Mundy also abused his close friend. Mundy refused to go for treatment to St. Luke’s but did agree to private counselor in Long Island. He has been identified as Priest A in the 2003 Grand Jury Report re Diocese.
