“I’m trying not to be in denial, but my prayers this morning were for him and for the person who accused him.”

Rain poured as parishioners exited St. Bridget Parish in Framingham on Sunday.

Two days earlier, the archdiocese announced the parish’s longtime pastor, Rev. Msgr. Francis V. Strahan, was put on administrative leave after it was alleged the priest had sexually abused a minor around 2006.

The allegation has unsettled members of the congregation, and, for many, it was hard to believe.
