A Somerset County priest has agreed to step away from his parish duties after federal agents raided his church. The diocese of Altoona-Johnstown released a statement earlier today, saying Reverend Joseph Maurizio pastor of Our Lady Queen of Angels Parish in Central City is on leave. Federal agents and homeland security raided the church on Friday- the diocese was not aware of it until later on. No charges have been filed and itís unclear what they were looking for.
