Former Archbishop Curley priest accused of sexual abuse

November 07, 2013|By Colin Campbell, The Baltimore Sun

A former Archbishop Curley High School student is accusing a Catholic priest and former teacher at the school with sexually abusing him on several occasions, according to a news release from the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

The priest, Fr. Michael Kolodziej, 69, has been suspended from the priesthood. He taught at Curley from 1975-79, during which time the former student says he "wrestled him" and abused him.

Kolodziej was ordained in Buffalo, N.Y., and has spent more than 30 years as a priest and teacher across several states.

The release said the abuse was reported to police as soon as school and archdiocese members found out about it. It encourages anyone who knows of child sexual abuse to report it to the Archdiocese of Baltimore's Office of Child and Youth Protection at 410-547-5348.
