Priest Resigns after Accusations of Sexual Misconduct
September 24, 2012
A Catholic priest in Evergreen Park has resigned after being accused of sexual misconduct.
Reverend Gary Miller has stepped down from his duties as pastor of St. Bernadette parish.
The Archdiocese of Chicago received a report in June saying Miller was sexually involved with a minor at St. Leonard parish in Berwyn, more than 30-years ago.
The archdiocese has reported the case to DCFS, and is sending a report to the Vatican.
Miller is also banned from performing any public ministry.
Cardinal Francis George will name a new pastor next month.
