New York Priests Placed on Leave due to Clergy Abuse Accusations

New York Priests Placed on Leave due to Clergy Abuse AccusationsA Mamaroneck priest was placed on temporary leave due to clergy abuse accusations. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York announced in a letter to members of the church that the priest who served at St. Vito-Most Holy Trinity Church in Mamaroneck, New York was placed on administrative leave. The allegations originate from the 1980s when the priest acted as the dean of discipline at Cardinal Hayes High School in Bronx, New York. The Archdiocese Lay Review Board and prosecutors will investigate the claims before making any final decisions on the priest’s status within the ministry.

Another case arose involving a Westchester priest who was removed from the ministry, according to an announcement made by Cardinal Timothy Dolan. The Monsignor who served at the Holy Rosary Church in Hawthorne, New York allegedly engaged in inappropriate conduct with a child several decades ago. The priest will remain on leave while independent investigators examine the claims.
