According to a December 2018 disclosure by the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus, in 1994, Barber admitted to sexually abusing a minor in Strathmere, NJ while he was assigned in the Diocese of Camden by “pleading guilty to a charge of “harassment by offensive touching.” He was removed from ministry and relocated to the Colombiere Jesuit Community in Baltimore.
