Beaulieu said he made the admission to then Principal Leo Labbe, SC and that Provincial Superior Brother Ronald Dupuis was informed. Labbe and Dupuis said they didn't remember the admission of sexual abuse by Beaulieu, or knowledge of abuse by Beaulieu.

Labbe was accused in 2002 of having sexually abused an 11 year-old boy in 1960-1961 at a Massachusetts school. Labbe denied the abuse.

Barnstead

Three men came forward in May 2002 with accusations that Beaulieu sexually abused them when they were boys in the 1970s, at Camp Fatima. One of the men said Beaulieu abused him in the summer of 1973 at the camp, and that the abuse continued into his freshman year at Bishop Guertin High School that fall.

Two brothers surfaced in May 2002 with accusations that Beaulieu molested them in 1972 at Camp Fatima, when they were 8 and 6 years old. They said that on two occasions Beaulieu had them take naps in his private cabin, after which he climbed into bed with them and fondled them.

In a July 2002 lawsuit, Beaulieu was accused of sexually abusing a 10 year-old boy in 1975 or 1976 at Camp Fatima.

Beaulieu was investigated in 2002, along with another Guertin teacher, after accusations surfaced that they had sexually assaulted students during the late 1970s. Beaulieu admitted in a deposition that he had sexually abused 15-20 students, and approached 50-75 others.

A former administrative assistant said she used to see Beaulieu slide up to students, press his hips against them and rub their thighs.

A man who taught with Guertin said publicly in 1997 that he was concerned in the 1970s when he happened upon Guertin and a student in the back of a school bus, and thought he was "interrupting something". The student later said Guertin had been fondling him. The boy's parents were said to have alerted school officials, who did nothing.

Beaulieu was accused in an Oct. 2003 lawsuit of sexually abusing a Guertin student in 1974, the spring of the boy's freshman year.

Several former students said Beulieu touched students during and after class, and would caress students' thighs in the classroom as he checked their work.

One man said in 2003 that Beulieu sexually abused him beginning when he was 12 years-old at Camp Fatima, and ending when he was a sixteen year-old Guertin student. The man said he dropped out of school abruptly the day Guertin tried to force oral sex on him, and he never completed high school. The abuse is said to have occurred from 1972-1975.

Priests in a Parish: We use the following convention to show a priest's place among the clergy of a parish: 1/2 means that he is the first priest listed in the Official Catholic Directory (usually the pastor) and that there is a total of two priests at the parish. The shorthand 3/4 means that the priest is listed third on a four-priest roster. See our sample page from the Directory.

Note: The Official Catholic Directory aims to report the whereabouts of Catholic priests in the United States on January 1 of the Directory's publication year. Our working assumption is that a priest listed in the Directory for a given year was at the same assignment for part of the previous year as well. However, Kenedy and Sons will sometimes accept updates well into the year of publication. Diocesan clergy records are rarely available to correct this information. The Directory is also sometimes misleading or wrong. We have tried to create an accurate assignment record, given the source materials and their limitations. Assignment records are a work in progress and we are always improving the records that we post. Please email us with new information and corrections.

This assignment record collates Beaulieu's career history as it is represented in the Official Catholic Directory with allegations as reported in the media. We make no representation regarding the truth of the allegation we report, and we remind our readers that the U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
