A Revere priest accused of sexually abusing a child will be returned to active ministry, the Boston archdiocese announced yesterday.

The Rev. Edward Keohan of Our Lady of Lourdes parish was placed on administrative leave in 2003 after the archdiocese received a single complaint of sexual abuse.

``After careful review of the information available regarding the complaint, the Review Board determined that the allegation was unsubstantiated,'' the archdiocese said in a statement yesterday.
