Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Alan Nagle:

Fr. Alan Nagle was one of the 156 priests identified by the Maryland Attorney General as having been accused of sexually abusing minors during their tenure with the Archdiocese of Baltimore.


According to the Attorney General’s report, a victim reported in 2009 having been sexually abused by Fr. Nagle in approximately 1970, when the victim was a freshman at Calvert Hall High School in Towson. Fr. Nagle took the victim and a group of boys on an overnight retreat to the Clare O’Dwyer Retreat House in Sparks, where Fr. Nagle separated himself and the victim from the rest of the group. Once Fr. Nagle was alone with the victim in a bedroom, Fr. Nagle sexually abused the victim.


According to the report, a victim was interviewed in 2018 and reported having been sexually abused by Fr. Nagle in 1969, when the victim was an altar boy at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Towson. Fr. Nagle brought the victim with him on several overnight trips to Pennsylvania, and on one occasion, Fr. Nagle became aggressive towards the victim and entered the victim’s bed in the nude.


Fr. Nagle’s name does not appear on the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s list of priests credibly accused of sexual misconduct with a minor.

According to the report, Fr. Nagle died in 1997.
