McQuaid: Fmr. teacher, principal appear on list of Jesuits with credible abuse claims
Brighton, N.Y. – Leaders at McQuaid Jesuit say a recently-released list of Jesuits with credible claims of sexual abuse contains those of two Jesuits who had worked at the school several decades ago.
The school says there were no claims of misconduct against Rev. Cornelius Carr or Rev. Roy Drake during their time at McQuaid. Carr served as the school’s principal from 1960-1964, while Drake taught math and science between 1957-1960.
In a statement released Monday, the school said allegations against Carr were made at a New Orleans high school in the 1970s and at two parishes in Florida in the 1990s. Allegations against Drake reportedly occurred in 1969 at a preparatory school in the Bronx and at a school in Maine in 1974.
Carr died in 2013, and Drake died in 2008.
In January, the school says the Northeast Province of the Jesuit Provinces of the United States will release a list of priests with credible allegations made against them. McQuaid said it is not aware of any names connected with the school that will be on the list.
