Ordained: 1967

Diocese: Archdiocese of Baltimore MD

In 2009, a victim reported to the Archdiocese that he was sexually abused by Father Alan Nagle in the 1970s. While Father Alan Nagle and the victim were alone in a bedroom at the house, Nagle fondled the victim’s penis. According to the victim, Nagle told him that it was Nagle’s “mission to teach [him] how to love a woman correctly.” The Archdiocese made the mandated reports to the appropriate authorities.

Another victim reported in October 2018 that Nagle had become aggressive and laid in bed with him naked during a visit to Pennsylvania in 1969. Nagle was noted to have a “drinking problem” and difficulty working with young people by several officials in the church. An undated note in the Archdiocesan records indicated that Nagle had no close friends and spent overnight stays with young boys. Nagle has not been listed as credibly accused by the Archdiocese.
