Allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour, incompatible with the priesthood have been brought against a priest of the Archdiocese of Castries.

A statement issued by the Archdiocese of Castries notes that using the mechanism at its disposal, the Archdiocese has initiated a process of investigation into the allegations.

The Archdiocsean Review Board after serious deliberations on the report which was filed, has concluded that the accused priest, in his relationship with the adult parisioner, acted inappropriately.

The Archdiocese considers this inappropriate behaviour, a serious matter, and has taken the decision to withdraw, the priest in question from pastoral ministry with immediate effect.

The priest has been placed on administrative leave and during this time, will receive spiritual counselling and support.
