Kiel Priest Removed for Inappropriate Conduct
January 4, 2014
A retired Salvatorian priest serving in Kiel is being removed from active ministry for inappropriate conduct.
The Rev. Loren Nys was pulled from priestly ministry after the Roman Catholic Salvatorian province reviewed his personnel file and found two letters from parents accusing Nys of inappropriate conduct with children, the Salvatorians said in a statement released Saturday.
The Milwaukee-based religious community is completing a review of all the personnel files of Salvatorian priests and brothers. The review implements the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ revised standards for protecting children, which state that any priest, deacon or brother must be restricted from public ministry if they have acted inappropriately toward minors.
Nys conduct was inappropriate, the province said, but did not involve “private parts.” The situation was handled by the Salvatorians at the time and was noted in his personnel file. He will reside in Milwaukee under the supervision of the province with retired Salvatorian priests and brothers.
