The Rev. Thomas Lisowski has been cleared to resume his full duties as a priest in Northfield after being placed on administrative leave in November in connection with an allegation of “inappropriate behavior involving a vulnerable adult.”

According to an announcement from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield, the recommendation to lift the temporary suspension was made to Archbishop Mitchell T. Rozanski by the diocesan review board after receiving a report from its investigative services.

Lisowski, ordained in 1986, has ministered for the last decade at St. Patrick’s Parish, a small parish of about 110 members near the Vermont border.
