Archbishop John Nienstedt has removed the pastor of Blessed Sacrament parish in St. Paul, Reverend Curtis Wehmeyer, after learning of allegations that the priest had engaged in misconduct involving a minor. Following archdiocesan policy, the Archdiocese immediately reported the allegations to the police, and an investigation into the allegations was begun. The Archdiocese is cooperating fully with police in their investigation.
Pending the outcome of the investigation, Father Wehmeyer is prohibited from exercising any ministry in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. He is no longer in residence at Blessed Sacrament. - Catholic Spirit
At this point it is just an allegation.
The move came after the archdiocese learned "of allegations that the priest had engaged in misconduct involving a minor," archdiocese spokesman Jim Accurso said in a Sunday, June 24, statement. "Following archdiocesan policy, the archdiocese immediately reported the allegations to the police, and an investigation into the allegations was begun."
Police arrested Curtis Carl Wehmeyer, 47, in Oakdale on Friday. He was released from the Ramsey County Jail on Monday, pending further investigation. He has not been charged.
Police are investigating the case as a sex assault, said Howie Padilla, police spokesman. A juvenile male told police Thursday it happened over a two-year period, Padilla said. - Source
If it is true, I don't get it. I don't understand it.
I'll keep praying for Fr. Wehmeyer and all priests. But I think we ought to pray more for the victims and for the souls scandalized by priests.
Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. - Psalm 146: 3
