Gerald Faue

Ordained: 1951

Gerald Faue was named in two civil suits accusing him of molesting children at St. Benedict Church in Montebello between 1963-68.

The file for Faue includes a 1985 letter from a superior telling him, “You clearly have a problem” and encouraging him to seek help after he was accused of inappropriately touching boys on a playground. Faue also was arrested for lewd conduct in an X-rated movie theater in Long Beach and later pleaded guilty to trespassing.

Faue died in 1989 while working at the Montebello parish.
