Statement by Father Luis Lopez

January 29, 2021 — You may have seen a news story by our local NBC station which alleges that I touched a seminarian inappropriately years ago.

There is no truth to these allegations made against me.

Please know that these allegations were part of a court case which was resolved to the satisfaction of all parties last November. I was not named as a defendant in that civil lawsuit, which had no finding or admission of liability by the Diocese or me.

The Diocese of Oakland considers all allegations of misconduct by clergy serious. The Diocese followed its usual protocols and processes in reviewing these allegations against me and found there was no need for any action. The matter is closed, from the perspective of the Diocese.

I did not engage in any of the improper conduct that has been alleged. I am grateful for your prayers, and ask you to hold everyone who is affected by this matter in your prayers.
