Monsignor Arthur Michael Karey (1918–1993). Ordained in 1943. More than two decades after his death, an allegation of the sexual abuse of a minor was brought forward to the Archdiocesan Review Board, considered, and deemed to be credible.

Parish assignments included serving as associate pastor at St. Francis Xavier, Ecorse (1944); St. Lawrence, Detroit (1949); St. John the Evangelist, Detroit (1952); and, as pastor at St. Joseph, Lake Orion (1964); Christ the King, Detroit (1968); and St. Aloysius, Detroit (1980).

The Archdiocese of Detroit places no deadlines or time limits on reporting the sexual abuse of minors by priests, deacons, and other personnel and/or to speak to the Victim Assistance Coordinator c/o (866) 343-8055 or
