Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father John Vincent:

Fr. John Vincent Crosier has been a member of the Crosier Fathers and Brothers order for more than 60 years. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career. According to media reports, in January 2020, he was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act of sexually abusing a boy, approximately 16 years old, in the late 1960s. The boy was a former Archbishop Stepinac High School student, where Vincent was assigned from 1966-1972. The lawsuit alleged that Vincent “sat on [the boy’s] lap, touched him and made ‘sexual contact’ in front of other students.”

According to the lawsuit served on the Archdiocese of New York, “the Crosier Review Committee has reviewed the accusation and, based on the available information, does not believe this accusation fits the definition of sexual abuse of a minor as stated by the Conference of Major Superiors of Men”.
