Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Raymond Fullam:

Father Raymond Fullam was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1945, and served in the Archdiocese of Newark. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career and died in 1987. According to media reports, in January 2019, his name appeared on the list of Jesuits with credible allegations of sexual abuse of minors since 1950, released by the USA Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus.

The list notes that in 2009, a Canisius High School alumnus accused Father Fullam of sexual abuse in 1954 during his tenure at the school. The charges were found to be credible after an investigation. He had served at Canisius High from 1953-1958, and from 1972-1976. An additional incident that occurred in 1965, was also found to be credible according to the high school statement.
