Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father John Lukasik:
Father John Lukasik was ordained a priest in 1953, who served in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. According to media reports, he was identified on a list of clergy who were already deceased when allegations of child sexual abuse were filed against them.
In January 2005, Father Lukasik was the subject of a civil lawsuit filed against the Diocese of Pittsburgh by a 53-year-old man who alleged that the priest sexually abused him after plying him with alcohol, in 1963 when he was an 11-year old student attending St. Mary Czestochowa Church in McKeesport. The suit also alleges a cover-up by church leaders.
Father Lukasik died in 1981.
