Fr. Edgardo (Edgar) Arrunataegui Jimenez

Ordination: 1983

Notes: Fr. Jimenez is a Peruvian priest that was ordained in 1984 and subsequently began working in the Diocese of Orange. After a couple of years working in the Diocese of Orange, Fr. Jimenez left the Diocese and reportedly went to Peru for mission work. It is believed he returned to California in 1998, this time working in the Diocese of Fresno. After approximately six years in the Diocese of Fresno, Fr. Jimenez left the Diocese of Fresno in 2002 and is believed to have fled the country. It wasn’t until 2004 that the reason for Fr. Jimenez’s abrupt departure from the Diocese of Orange—allegations of sexual abuse—was released. Around this time, Fr. Jimenez was recorded as working at a parish in Madrid, Spain. The last record of Fr. Jimenez in Spain was recorded in 2009. In 2017, an investigative news team found Fr. Jimenez working as a hospital chaplain for the diocese in Chimbote, Peru. Fr. Jimenez’s current whereabouts, status as a priest, and whether he has access to children are unknown.
