Summary of Abuse Allegations against Monsignor James E White:

Msgr. James E White was a member of the Congregation of Christian Brothers before being ordained a priest in 1983. He served as Dean of Students at Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, New York, and as Parochial Vicar at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. In October 1995, Pope John Paul II named him a Prelate of Honor with the title “Monsignor”. He also served as Secretary to the late Cardinal John O’Connor, Archbishop of New York.

According to media reports, in October 2019, White, pastor of St. Vito-Most Holy Trinity in Mamaroneck, New York was placed on administrative leave after he was accused of child sexual abuse in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act.

White died in December 2019.
