Fr. Caparella is at least the third Serra High School cleric who is accused of child sexual abuse. Father Michael LeDoux and Brother Kenneth Ghastin - have also been accused of molesting and cases against them have settled. Fr. LeDoux was there from 1995 to 2000. Br. Ghastin was there from 1983 to 1991. All three are Franciscans.
None of the four clerics Ė Caparelli, Deakin, LeDoux or Ghastin- are listed on the Pittsburgh Diocese website.
Fr. Caparella died in 1991. The whereabouts of the other three are unknown. Deakin reportedly left the priesthood and the Capuchin order in 1988, married, and went to work for a Pittsburgh department store. He is believed to be a Pittsburgh native.
