Siobhan Fleming, PhD

I have more than 25 years experience researching the Catholic Church and the continued crisis of sexual abuse by the clergy. I provide an expertise into the patterns and practices, education and policies of the Church. 

 

I have researched the Catholic Church in Texas, in particular the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

I am a product of 16 years of Catholic education.

Researcher & Consultant

On January 31, 2019 the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston published the names of priests who have been "credibly accused" of sexual abuse of a minor since 1950. The list contained the names of 40 priests who have been assigned to the area who the Archdiocese identified as having a credible accusation of sexual abuse of a minor. Two additional priests named are currently under investigation.

On my Research page I report the findings of a deep dive into the histories of the credibly accused. I review all available resources to give a complete picture of each priest including his education, churches, schools and cities where he was assigned.
