Fr. Brian D. Bjorklund

Brian D. Bjorklund, also known as Bjorkland, was a navy chaplain. He was removed from active ministry in 2003 after allegations he abused a male minor in the early years of his priesthood. No criminal charges and a review board found charge to be substantive. He was reinstated as active priest in 2/04 after Vatican ruled that, per canon law in place in 1975-76, the alleged action “did not constitute the crime of sexual abuse of a minor under the age of 16.”

The Navy did not take him back and he died on 9/25/07.

If you or someone you love was sexually abused by a priest or someone else associated with the Catholic Church, please contact Paul and his team to learn about the new law and to ensure your rights are protected.
