PRIEST SUSPENDED - The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Santa Fe said Sunday that the Rev. Ignacio Tafoya, pastor of St. Anne Parish in Albuquerque, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into allegations of past sexual misconduct with minors.

Tafoya has not been named in any of the dozens of clergy sex-abuse lawsuits filed in state district court.

Tafoya, 56, has been pastor at St. Anne the past nine years and before that was pastor of San Ignacio Parish in Albuquerque for eight years.
