Notes: Fr. Peadar Brennan was alleged to have impregnated at least two parishioners and fathered at least three children while he worked at various parishes in California. After fathering his second child, he was moved to the Diocese of San Diego and then to Albuquerque Villa, an institution run by the Servants of the Paraclete and known for treating priests accused of child sexual abuse. Fr. Brennan was subsequently transferred to the Archdiocese of San Francisco where he became the founding pastor of Holy Innocents. Fr. Brennan resigned in approximately 1995 and is believed to be married. In 2010, as part of a settlement with survivors of child sexual abuse, the Diocese of San Diego released Fr.
