Brooklyn Park Priest Removed from Ministry
March 23, 2016
A Twin Cities priest has been removed from the ministry because of a child sex abuse case in Pennsylvania.
The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis announced the Rev. Bradley Baldwin of the Church of St. Gerard in Brooklyn Park is on a leave of absence.
Baldwin hasn't been charged in the Pennsylvania case, but his name does appear in documents of the investigation.
The church is working to clarify his role in supervising a friar who molested more than 100 children.
The Archdiocese says Baldwin has served in the Twin Cities for 12 years without incident.
Last week, Minneapolis priest the Rev. Anthony Criscitelli, was charged with child endangerment in relation to the case.
He was removed from the ministry.
