Buffalo diocese substantiates abuse claims against two priests

The Diocese of Buffalo has substantiated allegations of child sexual abuse against two priests. Rev. Fabian Maryanski and Rev. Mark Wolski have been added to a list of priests with substantiated claims on the diocese's website. That list now has 80 names.

The allegation against Maryanski comes from a woman who says she was abused when she was a teenager at St. Patrick Church in Barker. Wolski served at SS. Peter & Paul Parish in Hamburg.

Abuse allegations leveled against several other clergy members are still being investigated.
