An Albuquerque priest who has served in the community for 40 years has been removed from active ministry following allegations of sexual abuse.

Father Ronald Bruckner’s removal from his duties at Our Lady of Annunciation parish follows a news conference held by a victims' group specifically to press for Bruckner’s removal.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, called for Bruckner’s suspension two weeks ago after an allegation that Bruckner was involved in a case of sexual abuse in the 1970s while serving as a priest in Los Alamos.
