Statement Regarding Charge of Fr. Chuck Hanel

Statement from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Regarding Recent Charge of Fr. Chuck Hanel

On September 5, 2018, the Waukesha County District Attorney’s office filed charges against Father Chuck Hanel, the pastor of Queen of Apostles Parish in Pewaukee.

The allegation was first reported on April 29, 2018, and Fr. Hanel was removed from ministry when the allegation was reported. He remains on administrative leave until the charge is resolved.

We continue to cooperate with authorities in this process, and now that a charge has been filed, we will await for the justice system to follow its course to a final resolution of the allegation.

Fr. Hanel denies the allegation. No other allegations have ever been received by the archdiocese or civil authorities about Fr. Hanel.

Please wait while we gather your results.
