On Thursday, the diocesan review board met and considered the reports of investigator Scott F. Riordan who was asked to investigate allegations of abuse against four priests of the Diocese of Buffalo.

As a result of these reports and the recommendations of the diocesan review board, the Most Rev. Richard J. Malone has made the following determinations:

Based on the information presented at this time, allegations of child sexual abuse against Rev. Fabian J. Maryanski and Rev. Mark J. Wolski have been substantiated, and they will remain on administrative leave while the results of the diocesan investigation are reviewed by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican in Rome, who will make the final determination.

Based on the information presented at this time, allegations of child sexual abuse against Rev. Roy Herberger and Monsignor Frederick R. Leising have not been substantiated, and they have returned to active ministry.
