Current count of Catholic pedophile priests found in Boston: 278

In the movie “Spotlight”, journalists from the Boston Globe knew that there was one pedophile priest that the Catholic church had been hiding.

As they investigated, the number jumped to 4, then 13, then 70.  By the end of the film, it was 249, but the number has gone up since then.

278 known Catholic pedophile priests, 18.5% of the 1500 Boston priests

The current number of known Catholic pedophile priests in Boston over the last 50 years is 278, larger than any other institution in any city in American history, by far

and that only includes the ones that the Catholic church admitted.  There are definitely more that we don’t know about because:

  • the victims never came forward
  • Catholic priests have obviously never voluntarily told the truth about it

You find out the actual number when you die.
