Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Donal Sheehan:

Father Donal Sheehan was recently included on the Diocese of Camden list of priests who were named as being “credibly accused” of child sex abuse. Other than his assignments and the year of his ordination, the Diocese of Camden did not provide any information about the number of allegations against Sheehan or the nature of the misconduct alleged.

According to Bishop Sullivan, the list, “includes those who admitted to the abuse, those who were found guilty after a trial in the church courts or the civil courts, and others against whom the evidence was so overwhelming as to be virtually unquestionable.”

The Diocese of Camden notes that Sheehan was removed from ministry, however, there is no information regarding the date of the removal. His current whereabouts were not disclosed by the Diocese of Camden. He is approximately 83 years old.
