|Assignment Record – Rev. John Schwartz, s.j.
Summary of Case: John Schwartz was ordained a priest of the Jesuits' Oregon Province in 1981. He was campus minister of Jesuit High in Beaverton through much of the 1980s, after which he left the Jesuits and spent a few years into the 1990s as a University chaplain and assistant at a Salem, OR parish. In 1997 Schwartz was accused of having sexually abused a Jesuit High student over a two-year period in the 1980s. Schwartz denied wrongdoing. The Official Catholic Directory does not index Schwartz between 1993-2003. It does show that he worked in parishes in the San Francisco archdiocese 2002-2005. His accuser sued in 2005 and Schwartz went on a leave of absence. Schwartz re-emerged as a nursing home chaplain in the archdiocese 2007-2011. His whereabouts beyond 2011 are unknown.
