Christobal Garcia


Christobal Garcia arrived in Los Angeles in 1983 and returned to the Philippines in 1985.  After allegations of sexual abuse surfaced, Garcia was officially removed from the Order in 1985.   Although he was expelled from the Order, he was welcomed into the Archdiocese of Cebu and was placed in a position where he continued to work with children.  In 1988, he was sued for sexual abuse of two boys in Los Angeles.  Despite the allegations, in 1997, Garcia was honored with the title Monsignor.   In 2012, Garcia was linked to illegal ivory smuggling.  His privileges with the Archdiocese of Cebu were removed in 2012.
