Crosier Father Gregory Poser has been accused of sexually abusing a minor in the 1970s while he was serving at St. Odilia in Shoreview, where he ministered from 1974 to 1978 and 1984 to 1985.
According to the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office was contacted and an investigation is underway. The archdiocese is cooperating with law enforcement.
The Crosiers’ prior provincial has placed Father Poser on immediate leave from his assignment as an associate pastor of Holy Cross in Onamia in the Diocese of St. Cloud.
