Notes: Two men came forward in 2002 to allege that they were abused by Proud in early 1970s. Sent to St. Luke’s after the first allegation was received spring 2002. Diocese admitted at least one man’s allegations were credible and the man was given a face to face meeting with Proud at St. Luke’s. Too late for criminal charges under SOL. Proud was permanently removed from ministry 6/03 by Diocese.
