Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Marjan Bober:

Father Marjan Bober is included in a 1994 lawsuit against the Diocese of Camden and other Diocese in New Jersey. He is accused of abusing one child with Fr. Patrick Weaver, at the parish of Saint John’s in Collingswood in 1967-1968.

The Diocese of Camden has not released any additional information more relating to the accusation, including whether there are any more known allegations against him.

Bober was allowed to retire to Palm Bay, Florida in 2004, where he continued to assist at various parishes in the Orlando Dioceses including St. Luke’s, St. Sebastian, St. Joseph’s, and Immaculate Conception.

Notably, his name does not appear on the Diocese of Camden’s list of credibly accused priests, released in February 2019, which indicates that it has no evidence that Bober abused any children as a priest, including in the St. John’s parish abuse.

Bober died in July 2017 in Florida.
