A senior retired priest, who served in Clinton Township, has been restricted from public ministry following an allegation of sexual misconduct with a minor, according to the Archdiocese of Detroit. 

The allegation dates back to Rev. Louis Grandpre's early years with the Detroit archdiocese. Civil authorities were notified and the Archdiocesan Review Board deemed the allegation substantive. Therefore, the 79-year-old is banned from all public ministry, the Archdiocese of Detroit stated in a news release.

Grandpre was named pastor of St. Paul of Tarsus Parish in Clinton Township in 1990. He retired in 2003. Before that, he served at parishes in Detroit, Dearborn, Algonac and Southfield, his biography states.
