A rare secret tribunal of the Catholic Church will be held in Madison in the cases of two priests accused of sexual misconduct.

Diocese of Madison spokesman Bill Brophy said recently that a "canonical trial" would be held on the charges against suspended priests Gerald Vosen and Kenneth Klubertanz.

Bishop Robert Morlino removed Vosen from his post as pastor of St. Joseph's Church in Baraboo in February, 2004.

Klubertanz was removed from his position as pastor of St. Patrick's Church in Lodi in June 2002 by Bishop William Bullock, now retired.
