Rev. John P. Paul, formerly of Our Lady of Calvary Parish, was permanently removed from ministry by Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput. Church officials said an archdiocesan review board had substantiated at least one claim that Paul, 67, sexually abused a teenager more than 40 years ago.
Rev. James J. Collins, 75, who had worked as a professor of religious studies at Holy Family University in Northeast Philadelphia, was also permanently removed from ministry by the Archbishop.
