Rev. Gerald Dunne Accused of Child Sexual Abuse

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says a priest accused of child sexual abuse denies the accusation but has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Church officials say parishioners at Resurrection of Our Lord Parish in Philadelphia were informed of the allegation against the Rev. Gerald Dunne this past weekend, following the filing of a lawsuit last week in Delaware.

The plaintiff in the lawsuit accuses Dunne, a member of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, of sexually abusing him some 30 years ago at Salesianium High School in Wilmington.
