Monsignor Vincent I. Breen, 71, has resigned as pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit after being accused of child molesting.

Breen's resignation was part of an agreement between police and church officials, William Macchi, an official of the Oakland Archdiocese said.

Macchi said the priest will leave the area and will undergo psychiatric care.

No charges were filed against Breen following several reports that he allegedly fondled several young girls.
