The public record is very sparse on life details of Jesuit Fr. David F. McCarthy who was assigned to live at the Jesuit residence at Loyola University Chicago in 1979. The public records do not indicate what position Fr. David F. McCarthy had for the fifteen years he was assigned to Loyola. The priest was later in his life accused of having abused several children while he was serving at Holy Family Parish in Chicago, between 1965 and 1968. McCarthy passed away in 1999. According to the Jesuit list however, the order received the accusations of child abuse against him while he was still alive, indicating that the Jesuits were aware of his offenses before 1999.[1]
