By Michael O’Connor / World-Herald staff writer

A local man alleges a religious order priest based in Omaha sexually abused him 30 years ago when he was a minor, the Archdiocese of Omaha announced Friday.

The archdiocese said the Rev. Anthony Palmese was associate pastor of Omaha’s Holy Ghost Parish in 1984-1985 when the alleged abuse occurred. The priest was a member of the New Jersey-based Order of Augustinian Recollects.
