Father Maday is alleged to have abused dozens of children before he was finally arrested and convicted. Nearly a dozen allegations were filed with the Chicago Archdiocese between 1997 and 2006. It also appears that the Archdiocese has long known that Father Mayday posed a danger to children. For example, in 1992 Father Mayday was “removed from St. Jude/So. Holland due to allegations brought to the attention of Pat O’Malley by the States Attorney.” [AOC003705] Father Maday, most recently, was a former associate pastor at Our Lady of the Ridge Parish in Chicago Ridge. Prior to that, he had held placement at Saint Jude the Apostle Parish in South Holland, IL, as well as St. Louis de Montfort parish in Oak Lawn, IL. You can read his full file by clicking here.
