Summary of Abuse Allegations Against Brother Robert Lindemann:

Br. Robert Lindemann was a brother of the Marianist order and worked in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, the Archdiocese of Baltimore, the Archdiocese of New York, Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In 2020, Br. Lindemann was listed on the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of Minors list. In December 2020, he was named publicly as accused by the Marianist Order on its list. In April 2023, Maryland’s Attorney General released a report alleging 156 Catholic clergy members sexually abused at least 600 children over six decades. The report lists the names of the abusers, including Father Robert Lindemann.

“In April 2021, the official committee of abuse survivors in the Diocese’s bankruptcy identified Brother Lindemann as a person accused of abuse who has some connection to the Rockville Centre Diocese.” According to the committee, the people on this list “…have been accused of committing sexual abuse. These people have served within the territorial limits of the  Diocese of Rockville Centre.  A religious order and/or diocese outside of the Diocese of Rockville Centre found sexual abuse accusations against these people to be credible, or sexual abuse lawsuits have been filed against these people.”

Brother Lindemann died in 1995.
