The USA Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus released a list yesterday, January 15 of Jesuits with credible allegations of sexual abuse against minors. This list includes Jesuits of the Northeast Province. While two of the Jesuits on the list, Father Peter Conroy (1980 – 1984, 1994 – 2002) and Father William Scanlon (1976 – 1980), were at one time missioned at Canisius, the incidents of abuse did not occur during their time at the college.
President John Hurley and Rev. Tom Slon, SJ, rector, invite the campus community to a forum today, January 16 at 3:00 p.m. in Old Main 223, to discuss the announcement, the handling of sex abuse claims by the Jesuits and to reflect on how it might affect our work at the college. Father Slon formerly served as assistant to the Provincial and has some background in the handling of sex abuse claims by the Province.
