INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis priest has resigned from his ministry after the Review Board for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis found a decades-old allegation of sexual misconduct against him to be credible.
The report of sexual misconduct against Fr. Patrick Doyle from "several decades ago" was received by the Archdiocese's Victim Assistance Coordinator last month, according to a release sent out by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
The allegation involved a "vulnerable female adult, age 18, who was an adolescent when at least the emotional aspects of the relationship began," according to a release sent out by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis on Monday.
Fr. Doyle was the pastor of Nativity Parish in Indianapolis and was the second Indianapolis priest to be suspended after Indianapolis Catholic Archbishop Charles Thompson issued a letter back in August saying he was preparing a list of clergy, living and dead, with a substantiated claim of sexual abuse against a minor or child.
The Archdiocese says they are working with parish leadership through the transition and will begin the process of assigning a new pastor soon.
