Father Ross S. Frey is a priest in the Melkite Greek Catholic Church. He worked in the Eparchy of Newton in Massachusetts.

Frey was ordained in 1974. He was accused of sexually abusing at least 11 teenage boys in the 1990s. The abuse occurred during weekend retreats at the Salvatorian Center, which is on the grounds of Saint Basil Seminary in Methuen, and at Saint Joseph’s Parish in Lawrence.

The priest was transferred to Lebanon in 1996 and later placed on leave. His current whereabouts are unknown.
