John J. Geoghan (pronounced /ˈɡeɪɡən/; June 4, 1935 - August 23, 2003) was a key figure in the Roman Catholic sex abuse cases that rocked the Boston Archdiocese in the 1990s and 2000s, and eventually led to the resignation of Boston's archbishop, Cardinal Bernard Francis Law, on December 13, 2002.

Geoghan was a graduate of Cardinal O'Connell Seminary, and was ordained in 1962.

He was assigned successively to Blessed Sacrament parish, Saugus; St. Bernard’s parish, Concord; St. Paul's parish, Hingham; St. Andrew's parish, Jamaica Plain; St. Brendan’s parish, Dorchester; and finally St. Julia’s parish, Weston.
