Mapping the Predators
On January 31, 2019 the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston (ADGH) released its Clergy Disclosure list naming the priests it deemed were "credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor."
We know about the shuffling of pedophile priests from parish to parish, but visually seeing the diaspora of their locations before and after they were in your diocese is a chilling testament to the reach these predators had.
This map is work in progress as I detail all the assignments of the priests named on the 'credibly accused' list published by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston from before and after they were in Houston. I will be adding all priests named by the Catholic Dioceses in Texas.
Click the map below to see the locations around the world where these predators were assigned or spent time. Click an icon to see the names of the priest(s) at each location/parish. Zoom in to see the Houston, Texas parishes that housed multiple offenders (e.g. The Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart had ten of the 44 named by Galveston-Houston).
