Priest Named on San Diego’s List Must be Added to Pittsburgh’s List
According to a recently published list, a priest who had been removed from his duties for abusing children also has connections to Pittsburgh.
The Rev. Peter Covas, who was named as an abuser on the list released by the Diocese of San Diego, also spent time in Pittsburgh. He worked at Duquense University as a history teacher in 1957.
We call on Bishop David Zubik to add this information to his list and to urge anyone who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes – at the hands of Rev. Covas or any other priest – to come forward and make a report to law enforcement.
