I will try to best answer your question.
I'm very sorry to hear about these traumatic circumstances you experienced. Because of the nature of the priest sexual abuse scandal new laws were passed in many states extending the statue of limitation for filing criminal actions and civil actions against priest.
I would recommend contacting the district attorney's office in the county in which you reside to report the incident if you intend to pursue the same. Even though the specific priest engaged in this heinous crime maybe deceased any superiors that were aware of the events or attempted to cover them up later may also be subject to criminal prosecution and/or civil liability. Similarly, you may also have the option of filing a civil suit as the statute of limitation have been extended as well for these incidents. My recommendation would be to start with the district attorney's office.
I hope that this information is helpful and I wish you the best of luck dealing with this serious matter.
