In 2004, survivors named Fr. Patrick H. Martin of the Archdiocese of New York as a defendant in a lawsuit, alleging that he sexually abused altar boys at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Manhattan, New York, between 1955 and 1961. The lawsuit alleges that other altar boys, apart from the plaintiffs, were abused by Fr. Martin. Fr. Martin was ordained in 1937 and had a disciplinary role at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Manhattan, New York.
