Notes: Fr. Philip Steigerwald has been named in at least one civil lawsuits alleging child sexual abuse. In 2002, a man alleged that he was abused by Fr. Steigerwald in 1978. The lawsuit claimed that the Church knew of the risk Fr. Steigerwald posed to young boys because they had previously been informed of his inappropriate conduct with a young boy before he was ordained while he was at Queen of Peace in Salem. It is believed that he worked at St. Raymond, in Dublin, California at some point during his career as a priest.
