The Diocese of Baton Rouge has named 45 clergy members who they've determined to have been credibly accused of abuse within the diocese or in other dioceses across the nation. 

Bishop Michael Duca released an initial list in January 2019 of 37 men. Within a year of the list's release, along with releases from other dioceses across the country, the list grew to 45. The Advocate has continued to update its list each time the Diocese adds to its own. 

This is the first time in the history of the Diocese of Baton Rouge that a Catholic bishop has attempted to provide an accounting of the identities of the alleged abusers in church ranks.

The list below, in alphabetical order, does not include employees of the church, or any other religious — such as nuns or brothers — who may have been accused. Clergy accused of sexually abusing a minor can try to clear their names through church tribunals, the outcomes of which are secret.

The biographies combine information provided by the bishop with information found in media reports, court documents and interviews.
