Rev. Timothy Conlon removed from ministry

I like seeing positive action like this on behalf of the Catholic Church. It gives me hope. 

"A Catholic priest in rural Arizona has been removed from ministry because of two recently reported and credible accusations of sexual abuse of minors that allegedly took place in North Dakota decades ago.

The alleged abuse by the Rev. Timothy Conlon, a member of the Crosier Fathers and Brothers religious order, was reported by the Diocese of Fargo. The Diocese of Gallup removed Conlon from his two Arizona parishes over the weekend."

Rev. Conlon is alleged to have abused children 40 years ago and was still an active priest.
