Joseph B. Di Peri
Joseph B. Di Peri was a priest of the Newark, New Jersey archdiocese, ordained in 1956. He worked in a number of archdiocesan parishes and schools, and was a hospital and youth detention center chaplain.
In 2002, the Los Angeles police received a report that Di Peri molested a male Chaminade High School student in 1977-78 while he was working in the Los Angeles Archdiocese. The campus dean was informed at the time, but no action was taken. The Newark archdiocese removed his privileges in 2003. By 2005, Di Peri was on the archdiocese’s “permanent monitoring system” and was living in a Trenton diocese retirement home. He died in 2007.
