Concern Raised about Priest Who Served in Kansas

Kansas City Star
April 11, 2013

The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas has received a report alleging sexual abuse of a minor by a priest who used to serve in the area, the archdiocese said Thursday.

The priest, who is with the Diocese of Guntur, India, denies the allegation, the archdiocese said.

The priestís assignments included Prince of Peace Church in Olathe from June 2003 until September 2005, St. Michael the Archangel Church in Leawood in summer 2007, and two other churches in Kansas in 2008, the archdiocese said in a statement.

In 2010, the archdiocese said, the priest resigned and was returned to his diocese in India after he admitted having sexual relations with an adult.

People with concerns are asked to call the archdiocesan safe environment coordinator at 913-647-0324, or the confidential report line at (913) 647-3051
