Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Fr. Delisle Lemieux:
Fr. Delisle Lemieux was ordained a priest in 1926, and served in multiple parishes in the Archdiocese of Denver. According to media reports, in October 2019, the Colorado Attorney General released a detailed report of a special investigation into the handling of child sexual abuse allegations by Colorado’s three Catholic dioceses. For the first time, Fr. Delisle Lemieux was publicly identified as a priest with a documented allegation of sexual abuse.
According to the Report, Lemieux was accused of abuse in 2017. The victim says he was a 13-year-old altar boy at Notre Dame parish in Denver when he was sexually abused by Lemieux on a four-day camping trip in approximately 1969.
