Priest loses post pending probe of alleged abuse

Philadelphia Inquirer

A Catholic priest has been removed from his position at a Feasterville parish as authorities in Bucks and Chester Counties investigate an allegation of sexual abuse, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said.
The Rev. James J. Brennan, ordained in 1989, was relieved this week of his duties as an assistant to the pastor at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, according to a news release issued Monday by Cardinal Justin Rigali.
