For over 15 years, Monsignor Richard Woy, chancellor and director of the Office of Child and Youth Protection of the Baltimore Archdiocese, has been aware of credible allegations of sexual misconduct involving Fr. Ron Pytel. The sexual misconduct with a teenage boy allegedly took place in 1975.
After the victim met with Fr. Richard Woy in 1995, Fr. Woy and the Archdiocese agreed to provide counseling assistance. However, in a document dated March 4, 1996, Woy claimed, “our investigation has uncovered facts that cast significant doubt upon your allegations.”
This web site recently received information which corroborates the victim’s claims of misconduct. We are verifying the information and will post it soon.
