The Chicago archdiocese has removed another priest from the public ministry as officials investigate allegations of sexual abuse, officials said Wednesday.

The alleged incidents took place more than 35 years ago and involved a minor, according to a statement from the nation's third-largest Roman Catholic archdiocese.

The statement did not name the priest, but said churches in which he worked will be notified on Sunday.

A phone message left with the archdiocese on Wednesday was not immediately returned.
