Priest placed on leave


The Green Bay Diocese announced June 9 that Fr. Mike Carroll, pastor of St. Anthony Parish, Tigerton; St. Mary Parish, Marion; and Holy Family-St. William Parish, Wittenberg/Eland, has been accused of sexually abusing a minor more than 20 years ago.

In accord with diocesan policies on sexual misconduct, Fr. Carroll has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation of this allegation.

Fr. Carroll categorically denies the allegation.

The diocese has tried to contact the alleged victim, through that person's legal counsel, to offer whatever assistance is needed.

This week, representatives from the diocese will be at the parishes where Fr. Carroll is serving to provide information and answer questions.
