Religious order names 7 former Minnesota priests accused of abuse


DULUTH, Minn. -- A Catholic missionary order on Tuesday released the names of seven former Minnesota priests who have been accused of child sexual abuse -- a list that includes five clergymen who worked within the Diocese of Duluth.

The list, made public through a settlement agreement between the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and an abuse victim, includes previously unreported priests who worked at parishes throughout the country, including in Duluth, Superior, Wis., International Falls and Northome.

All seven were members of the Oblates, and five worked within the Diocese of Duluth at some point: James Vincent Fitzgerald, Michael Charland, Robert Reitmeier, Paul Kabat and Thomas Meyer.
