Summary of Abuse Allegations Against Mr. Frank Cimino, Jr.

Mr. Frank Camino, Jr. was the founder and director of the Maryland State Boychoir in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Camino resigned after being identified as one of the 156 Catholic Church staff named in a Maryland Attorney General’s Office report on child sex abuse in the Archdiocese of Baltimore that was released in April 2023.

According to an investigation by The Baltimore Sun, Frank Cimino was the minister of music at St. Thomas More Catholic Church when he allegedly sexually abused a choirboy in the 1970s. He was fired from the position in 1987 amid the allegations.  He went on to found the Maryland Boychoir that very same year. Cimino was one of ten names redacted in the version of the report publicly released, but he resigned from his position with the Maryland State Boychoir after he was identified by the Baltimore Sun. The Boychoir was based at St. Matthew United Church of Christ in northeast Baltimore and has been named an official goodwill ambassador of the state of Maryland, performing at the White House, the Vatican, and other prominent locations. According to the Sun’s report, Cimino was still leading rehearsal at St. Matthew weeks after the redacted version of the report on clergy abuse in the Maryland Catholic Church was released.
