At the end of summer of 1966, Bernard Waltos joined Loyola as an undergraduate student. After his time at Loyola, Waltos joined the Franciscan order and was ordained a Franciscan priest in 1974. He allegedly abused children while working at the Queen of Angels dioceses in Riverside, California in the late 1980s. The diocese learned of this abuse case only after Waltos had passed away in 1992.
