CAMDEN — A Catholic priest has been permanently removed from the ministry following a substantiated allegation of sexual abuse of a minor while the priest was assigned to a Gloucester County parish 40 years ago.

The Rev. Michael H. D'Amico, 65, may no longer function or present himself as a priest, according to the Catholic Star Herald, published by the Diocese of Camden.

D'Amico is alleged to have sexually abused a child while assigned to Most Holy Redeemer Parish in Deptford Township, according to the Star Herald. D'Amico served at Most Holy Redeemer in 1964 and 1965, according to the Star Herald.

The alleged victim, now, 54, raised the issue in April.

The diocese has reported the allegation to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office as well as the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office. D'Amico was based in Atlantic County at the time the allegation was raised.

The announcement of D'Amico's removal as a priest follows a meeting between Bishop Joseph Galante and the alleged victim, according to the newspaper.
