Catholic Priest Resigns Amid Allegations

Catholic Priest Resigns Amid Allegations

A Catholic priest in Kentucky has resigned as pastor of a church following allegations of inappropriate contact made by two men.

Bishop John Stowe accepted the resignation of the Rev. Alan Carter as pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Church in Danville this week.

Catholic Diocese of Lexington communications director Don Clemmer says Carter was removed as vocations director of the diocese last month following the first allegation, which Clemmer says dates back to when Carter was ordained seven years ago.

Clemmer says he’s not aware of any criminal charges against Carter.
