Another former priest has been added to the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend’s list of clerics credibly accused of abuse of a minor, the diocese announced Tuesday.
Gerald Funcheon was a member of the Crosier Congregation, but assigned at times within the diocese.
He was included on a list published by the Crosier Fathers of those credibly accused of abuse of a minor. He has been added to the diocese list because of a credible accusation of abuse that took place while assigned in the diocese, according to the diocese.
Funcheon was ordained in 1965 and was removed from ministry on April 1, 1993, according to the diocese.
One credible allegation was made against him, the diocese said.
