Yesterday the Archdiocese of Boston revealed that a catholic priest has been prohibited from carrying out his duties in Hub churches. The reason behind it is that he has been accused of sexual misconduct.
The name of the priest is Rev. Gabriel Michel. He is a priest of the Archdiocese of Cap-Haitien in Haitiand. Since 2002, he has been working in the Boston archdiocese. Lately, he was working at St. Angela’s Parish in Mattapan as a provincial cleric.
The archdiocese also revealed that he had had earlier served at the Massachusetts General Hospital as a chaplain.
A spokeswoman at the archdiocese refused to talk about the accusations against the priest. The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston has taken away his rights to carry out his services.
On Sunday, the decision was announced by the Boston archdiocese as it disclosed that it has informed the SDB, Archbishop of Cap-Haitien, and the Most Reverend Louis Kebreau.
In another development, a priest in Connecticut was accused of theft at a parish in Waterbury. Father Kevin J. Gray had reportedly stolen money from the parish over a period of eight years. His theft came to light during a regular inspection of finances in the organization and it was found that finances to the tune of one million dollar had been missing.
