Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father John Ralph Moholy:

In 2003, Fr. John Ralph Moholy was accused of child sexual abuse that allegedly occurred in 1960. At the time of the abuse, Moholy was working at Loyola University in Los Angeles, California. According to his assignment history, Moholy was assigned to Loyola University from 1949 and 1964. In 2018, the Diocese of Los Angeles publicly named Moholy on its list of archdiocesan clergy credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor. In addition, he was included on the Jesuits West Province list in 2018.

Moholy died in 1997, six years before the accusation came to light.
