The Diocese of Duluth announced that retired priest Father Cornelius Kelleher has been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor female.

Kelleher retired in July of 2012 after 56 years of priesthood.

He was removed immediately from public ministry and can no longer function as a priest in his retirement.

No formal litigation has taken place.

A press conference with Bishop Sirba addressing the issue is scheduled to take place on Monday at the Pastoral Center.
