Archbishop Jose Gomez bows his head during a Ceremony of Transition as Archbishop at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has quietly added two dozen members of the church to its list of clergy accused of child molestation without publicly addressing the circumstances about the accused members.

The additional names were found by BishopAccountability.org, a nonprofit organization that researches the Catholic abuse scandal. The names were disclosed on the Archdiocese's website with 12,000 pages related to its handling of abuse claims.

The Archdiocese has declined to release additional information about the members, such as the dates of the suspected abuse and where the clergy worked.
