Allegations of sexual abuse against a priest who served two parishes in Lansdale are unsubstantiated and he is suitable for ministry, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced Sunday.
Monsignor Joseph L. Logrip was among 26 priests placed on administrative leave following a 2011 report by a Philadelphia grand jury that investigated sexual abuse of minors by clergy and archdiocese employees. His case is the final one to be resolved.
Logrip had most-recently served the St. Mary Manor and St. Stanislaus parishes in Lansdale from 2010 to 2011. Announcements about the disposition of his case were made at those parishes this weekend and counselors were made available, the archdiocese said in a statement.
