Joseph M. Henry

Ordained: 1933

Originally from Ireland, Joseph Henry entered the Maryknoll Missionaries in 1922 and was ordained in 1933. He spent much of his early career in China before being assigned to Hawai’i in 1950. For most of his time in Hawai’i, Henry was the pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Kailua. He died in 1974. Plaintiffs have brought claims alleging his routine abuse of young altar servers during his tenure at St. Anthony’s in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Henry died in 1974.

Henry sometimes went by the name J. Michael Henry.
