The Database of Publicly Accused Priests does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations.The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty.Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise.Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.For more information, see our posting policy.

This detailed table provides links to information about priests who have worked in Rockville Centre and who have been publicly accused of sexual abuse.

We have also included preliminary lists of the parishes and schools where the priests were assigned. Each of these places is a vulnerable community, where victims might not yet have come forward. This table is a work in progress. If you have corrections or additions, please email us at This table was last updated on 4/16/07.

We thank an anonymous source who provided us with copies and summaries of pages from a 1990 diocesan Directory of Priests, which gives start/stop dates for assignments. In building the assignment records, we have supplemented that data with information from the Official Catholic Directory (referred to as the Directory below) and from media coverage. The Directory does not provide start/stop dates. Every U.S. diocese keeps start/stop records for each of their priests; those records for Rockville Centre have not been released. (For an example, see a priest's assignment record subpoenaed from the Boston archdiocesan files.)

Note: In January 2005, Bishop Murphy announced that the allegations cited below against Revs. Brian J. Brinker and Michael A. Carroll were deemed unsubstantiated by the Vatican. The church has cleared both men to return to ministry. Rev. William R. Logan was suspended in March 2006 and reinstated in September 2006. This table lists all priests against whom allegations have been made public. We remind our readers that under U.S. law, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty.
