Two Windsor priests removed from Diocese of London
The Diocese of London says it has a 'zero tolerance' policy regarding sexual abuse
A Diocese of London bishop has removed two Windsor priests from the organization.
Bishop Ronald Fabbro issued a statement shortly before Christmas notifying diocese parishioners of the removal.
Maurice Charbonneau and Andrew Dwyer had been relieved of their pastoral duties immediately following allegations of inappropriate sexually activity.
Allegations against Charbonneau were brought forward October 2017 and information about Dwyer was brought forward September 2018.
Separate investigations took place within the church. Fabbro involved the Safe Environment Advisory Committee in deciding that the two would not be permitted to return to the ministry.
Fabbro's notice says that their "faculties have been permanently removed," which means that their authority as a priest has been taken away.
"Anyone who observes that either individual is acting in a manner that is inconsistent with this directive is asked to notify my office immediately," said Fabbro in the notice.
