Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father George M. Dyke:

According to media reports, Father George M. Dyke trained at Catholic University in Washington, DC 1949-1951. He was dean from 1953-1960. 

He was placed on leave in 1965, and was laicized in 1968 at his own request. 

In 2003, his name was included in the Diocese of Tuscon’s list of clergy credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors. No information on the victims or time of abuse was noted. The review of archival records has shown that there was a failure to report the allegations made against him.

Father Dyke died in 1971.
