Michigan church hires Minnesota archbishop linked to clergy sex abuse

A Minnesota archbishop who was forced to resign when his diocese faced criminal and civil charges related to sexual abuse by clergy has been appointed assistant priest at a church in Michigan.

Saint Philip Roman Catholic church in Kalamazoo announced this week that it had appointed former St Paul and Minneapolis archbishop John Nienstedt to assist the parish while its head pastor dealt with medical issues.

Nienstedt resigned in June 2015, days after Ramsey County attorney John Choi filed criminal and civil charges against the archdiocese. Choi alleged at the time that the archdiocese “time and time again turned a blind eye” to clerical sex abuse. It was the first time a US archdiocese had faced such charges in a decade.

She became a whistleblower after advising the Archdiocese of St Paul and Minneapolis not to hire priest Curtis Wehmeyer because of his file, which included an evaluation from a treatment center for clergy with sexual disorders. Wehmeyer was still appointed and Haselberger contacted law enforcement.
