Father Wayne Dohey removed from St. Patrick's parish
A Roman Catholic priest has been suspended from his position at a St. John's church.
Archbishop Martin Currie has removed Father Wayne Dohey as parish priest for St. Patrick's parish, pending an investigation into a complaint.
Currie's decision to suspended Dohey from all ministerial duties was made public in a statement issued Thursday by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. John's.
The statement did not identify the nature of the complaint, but confirmed there is no connection to recent charges that relate to an alleged embezzlement of funds at the same parish.
In 2007, Dohey was charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation. However, those charges were dismissed.
