Two priests removed over allegations

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Two small-town Roman Catholic priests have been removed from active service by the Diocese of Jefferson City following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The diocese is investigating claims against the Rev. Louis E. Dorn of St. Joseph Catholic Church in the northeast Missouri town of Louisiana and the Rev. John Joseph Schutty of St. Cecilia Catholic Church in the Osage County town of Meta, church officials said Wednesday.

...the Rev. James Smith, St. Peter's associate pastor, said that even publicizing the diocese's preliminary action is a disservice to the two men. "It's nobody's business," he said. "There is a way this is handled in the diocese."
This is too bad. We should pray for all involved...
