Summary of Abuse Allegations Against Sister Theonella Flood
Sister Theonella Flood, Mary Margaret Flood, was a School Sister of Notre Dame and worked in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. 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 Sister Flood.
According to the Attorney General’s report, in 2006, a 61-year-old man contacted the Archdiocese of Baltimore and reported that when he was 11-12 years old, in approximately 1956-1957, he was sexually abused by Sister Flood at St. Joseph Passionist Monastery School, which is now closed. Flood requested the victim help carry books. When the victim agreed, Flood “took him to an elevator where she forced him to touch her breasts and her vaginal area over the top of her clothes.” The archdiocese made the mandatory report of the abuse to authorities and settled in 2012.
