Michigan Priest Accused of Misconduct With a Minor

A priest in the Diocese of Saginaw has been put on administrative leave as the church looks into allegations of misconduct with a minor.

Father Dennis Kucharczyk was the pastor of St. John XXIII Parish and served churches in Hemlock, Merrill and Ryan.

The diocese says the allegation involves a minor and happened many years ago.

Kucharczyk is not allowed to have any contact with anyone under 21 during the investigation or present himself as a priest in public.
