The Boston Herald reports that two Boston priests are taking a leave of absence from ministry. Father Joseph Keil, who was co-pastor of Our Lady Help of Christians parish in Newton, is the third pastor to resign from the parish in 10 months. Fr. Walter Cuenin resigned last October after allegations of financial misconduct and Fr. Christopher Coyne, his replacement, left in April after it became clear that Cuenin’s supporters would never accept him as replacement.
The article also briefly mentions that Fr. Christopher Kirwan, who teaches at St. John’s Seminary, is the other priest.
