The disclosure follows the release of lists by more than 120 dioceses around the country as the church has sought to increase transparency and rebuild trust among outraged Catholics, according to Terry McKiernan, president and co-director of the watchdog website BishopAccountability.org.
"It's good (the New York Archdiocese) finally put out a list. There are only two other archdioceses in the country that have not. So they were long overdue," said McKiernan, referring to those in Miami and St. Louis.
Advocates for survivors of sexual abuse consider the self-reported lists unreliable and incomplete. The lists do not detail when accusations were made, where the abuse occurred or what was done after an accusation was made.
The New York list did not include the assignment histories of the priests, the number of victims or names of clergy from other religious orders who worked in the archdiocese. Some orders have released their own lists.
"The downside is that it's a bad list," McKiernan said. "It leaves off religious order priests. It leaves off so called 'externs,' which are priests officially incardinated as they call it in a different diocese but working and sometimes abusing in New York."
More than 13 states have launched investigations of clergy sex abuse
The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests called the information released Friday "good but not enough for a complete list" and urged Dolan turn over all of his files on clergy sex abuse for an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
