Owensboro Priest Suspended

The Catholic Diocese of Owensboro has temporarily suspended Father John Meredith.


The Owensboro Catholic Diocese has suspended Father John Meredith.

Meredith was the pastor at Blessed Mother Catholic Church in Owensboro.  According to a letter signed by Bishop William Medley and sent to members of Blessed Mother, Meredith left the church earlier this month for a "medical leave of absence," but that leave is now a temporary suspension.  The Letter goes on to say there have been allegations against Meredith of in appropriate conduct with a minor.

The letter does not say what the inappropriate conduct might be, when it may have occurred, who the victim or victims might be, or when the Diocese was made aware of the allegations.  It does say a Diocese Review Board has looked into the allegations and has found them to be credible.

In the letter Bishop Medley also asks for compassion for the person who brought the allegations to light, and he asks for prayers for Father John, his family and friends, and all of the Blessed Mother Community.
