Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced the arrest Thursday morning of Rev. Robert L. Brennan.
"A serial predator is now behind bars thanks to brave actions of this young man," Williams said.
Brennan is accused of sexually assaulting the altar boy from 1998 to 2001 when the child was between 11 and 14 years old, according to authorities.
Williams described in graphic detail how Brennan, who was 60 when the alleged attacks started, began sexually assaulting the boy when the victim was in the 6th grade.
