The Database of Publicly Accused Priests does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations.The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty.Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise.Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.For more information, see our posting policy.

The two newest priests of the Catholic Diocese of Allentown now know where they will serve, as do 26 other priests who received new assignments in the annual diocesan shuffle.

The Rev. David M. Anthony and the Rev. Stephan A. Isaac were ordained by Bishop John O. Barres on Saturday, bringing to 110 the number of active priests serving 270,000 Catholics in the five-county diocese.

Isaac, of Easton, was a parishioner at St. Jane Frances de Chantal in Palmer Township. But it was his fellow ordinand, Anthony, 27, of Bethlehem, who was assigned to that parish.

Isaac, 28, will serve as parochial vicar at St. Ignatius Loyola Parish in Sinking Spring.

The diocese is also welcoming a priest from outside its borders. The Rev. Gregory Pendergraft is a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, which provides the Mass and other sacraments according to the liturgical books of 1962, preceding the changes wrought during and after Vatican II.

He will be in residence at St. Stephen of Hungary in Allentown, which has been the home to the Extraordinary Form of the Mass — informally known as the Latin Mass — since 2006. The Rev. William Seifert, who had led the community, has been assigned to St. Patrick's in Pottsville.

The fraternity was established by Pope St. John Paul II in 1988 to minister to Catholics attached to the old forms. Pendergraft is director of development for its North American headquarters in Elmhurst Township, Lackawanna County.

St. Stephen's, which last year celebrated the centennial of its founding by Hungarian immigrants, will no longer offer Mass in the Ordinary Form.
