Summary of Allegations Against Father Casimir Lewandowski:
Father Casimir Lewandowski was ordained a priest in 1945, who served in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. According to media reports, he was first named publicly as accused in a priest profile in the 2018 Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. In 2016, a 64-year-old woman called the Diocese and reported that when she was approximately 12 years old in the sixth grade, Father Lewandowski sexually abused her during his assignment at Madonna of Czestochowa.
She remembered walking upstairs in the rectory with Father Lewandowski. She recalled his erect penis and semen on her dress, and as he said to her, “You are a dirty little girl, aren’t you?” The Diocese of Pittsburgh sent her money to cover the cost of the years of therapy she had gone through following the incident.
Father Lewandowski died in 1978.
